UPLOADED RESUME
  • * S A M A N T H A H O L L A N D

    Samantha trained at The Guildhall School of Music & Drama graduating in
    1991 where she studied all disciplines, including both physical and
    classical theatre. During her time at Guildhall she worked with the
    Russian director Vasily Skorik and movement professor Nikolai Karpov (St
    Petersburg) before joining the Royal National Theatre. Her work has
    covered all disciplines and has included setting up a theatre company
    concentrating on site specific work in and around London; a group called
    The Lab to provide a space for actors between work to maintain their
    training and create new work; and her own production company to produce new
    writing and devised work. She has worked with Wimbledon School of Art to
    create devised theatre with the art students and introduced children and
    adults to the techniques of improvisation and a more free fall approach to
    acting than the usual exam based texts, and has lectured to literature and
    drama students at the American College in London. She made her directorial debut directing La Gran Tirana, a play based on the life of the Cuban singer La
    Lupe. It opened in Valencia in May and June 2008.
