I have accumulated practical, academic, leadership and artistic experiences over 40 years in the fields of Performing Art as a Director, an Actor and an Educator-Trainer. My expertise lies in theatre, Radio and TV directing and acting (over 80 productions in several styles) and teaching, self-development coaching and yogic practices. I am a motivational leader with advanced supervisory. I step easily into roles and make needed positive changes to drive project success. Therefore, I am focused on using training, monitoring and morale-building techniques to maximise team members' engagement and performance in every field of my activities.
These are suitable areas for our development sessions. Did not find what feels perfect or exciting? No worries, get in touch via the form- insight lies in the conversation! My creative coaching combines different forms of study. As my approach is personal, even with corporate clients and a portfolio extensive, we will find the best-tailored solution that suits perfectly. As a result, our clients and students will meet an extraordinary landscape, where fresh, straight-from-the-field experience will land the suitable form of study. Since 1998- Telia, BBC, Corpore, ERR, Estonian Ministery of Culture, Innove, Finnish Broadcasting Corporation, Estonian Energy, SEB Bank, Swedbank, Luminor Bank, LHV-Bank, European Broadcasting Union, Ragn-Sells, Intrum Justitia AS, Elisa, Latvian Radio- to name a few of satisfying projects!
I am open to invitations for collaboration in these fields. I also supervise and give workshops on the named subjects; please feel free to enquire more!
Perceptual bodymind practices, grounded on both practical and academic knowledge and personal experience, have led me through exciting and challenging times in my life. I am pleased to share the top of the iceberg of these, accumulated in primary practices I live, improve, and develop daily. As our body is our temple, keeping it balanced and well-maintained is the foundation for an inspiring and fulfilling life.
I hold BA and MA in Performing Arts. I am trained as a director and an actor and Manchester Metropolitan University (UK) PhD candidate. My research focuses on actor-director collaboration, self-developmental actor training, consciousness and immediate transmission in theatre. After cultivating Dramatin Estonian Public Broadcasting Company for fifteen yea,s; in 2008, Polygon Theatre, which amalgamates professional theatre and drama school, was born. Alongside directing internationally for over thirty years, I have taught performing arts at several universities internationally. I am the author of the book on audio art Silent Listening Is Easier (2003) and articles about performing arts, as well as being a playwright myself.
Personal balance is essential for our daily experience. So I am glad to share my understanding of it around several areas of life.
Directing- a new book!
``Directing!`` This is a fresh perspective on contemporary stage directing craft according to nowadays demands and societal understandings. The book gives light to the classical Stanislavskian directing, enriched with my practical experiences from over eighty productions in thirty years with actors from different cultures and nationalities. The reader can find a unique approach with the adjustments connected to online directing, teamwork, actor coaching and the director's personal development. It is written in straightforward language, avoiding too much professional terminology or specific jargon to be easily understood by a person outside of the field.
