Rebecca is a trained actor and theatre-maker currently based in London. She graduated from Northumbria University with a BA (Hons) Performance in 2016 and then went on to complete an MA in Performance Studies at Tisch School of the Arts, New York University in 2018. As an actor, Rebecca has explored the approaches of many practitioners including Brecht, Artaud, Stanislavsky, Boal, Peter Brook, and Richard Schechner. Rebecca is always drawn to strong dramatic characters as well as comedic roles and enjoys using comedy when creating theatre to challenge conventions in new ways. Whilst studying Rebecca also developed her skills as a writer, writing several short sketches and performances that were developed and performed in Newcastle as Honest Magpie Theatre; a collective she established in Newcastle to provide a platform to develop new work as a graduate actor/artist.
Throughout both degrees, she developed an interest in Verbatim Theatre and how it’s the detailed approach to storytelling can work to expand the actor’s repertoire. Taking classes with Anna Deavere Smith in New York, Rebecca began to work on an approach to acting that was based on instant storytelling focused on presence; existing and reacting moment to moment to create authenticity. Rebecca’s experience with Verbatim theatre also developed her vocal ability to achieve a variety of accents and vocal nuances in performance including R.P, American (southern and general), and Cockney.
Rebecca is also a trained dancer with I.S.T.D dance qualifications in disco freestyle, Rock ’n’ Roll, Latin, Ballroom and Street dance styles.
