My journey from actor to coach…

I’m Sarah Purcell A.L.C.M, B.Ed., originally from Dublin. I am an International Acting Coach currently residing in Berlin. I am an Associate of the London College of Music and Drama. I have been working with the Michael Chekhov Technique for over 15 years, having completed intensive training at the Michael Chekhov Studio London with Graham Dixon and Sarah Kane and qualifying as a teacher of the Michael Chekhov Technique at the Gaiety School of Acting, Dublin with Joerg Andrees.  I have lectured at the Michael Chekhov: History, Theory and Practice Conference held by the National Academy of Dramatic Art, Warsaw and subsequently had this lecture published. I currently work as a freelance teacher.  I worked at the Michael Chekhov International Academy (MCIA), Berlin and also held weekly acting classes at Mime Centrum, Berlin and have taught MA Acting students at ALRA (Academy of Live and Recorded Arts), UK and students at the Northern Centre for Voice and Movement, UK, and taught the Michael Chekhov strand on the MFA Linklater teaching practice course at ALRA, UK I have adjudicated the Rush 3 Act Drama Festival  as part of the ADCI (Amateur Drama Council of Ireland) I currently teach at The Michael Chekhov Studio Berlin on the Berufsbegleitende Weiterbildung (Schauspiel und Improvisation)

Projects and productions...

In Ireland, I performed as an actor and in London,  founded Roonagh Productions with fellow actor Stephen Gibbons. With Barnyard Productions alongside Gretchen Egolf and Patrick Bailey, we devised a theatre piece ‘How we need it to be’ for the International Festival of Projections held at the University of Kent. I took part in the ‘Created to Create Project 2017’ published by SuperSpace productions. 

Coaching it’s not about your coach, but about this relationship of trust that we create to propel you where you want to go, to who you want to be.
