Nathalie Adam

Director Acting teacher Actor European Feminist

I have been working as an actor for more than 25 years in France, my native country, where I trained with the Stanislavsky method, Antonin Artaud, and Jacques Coppeau heritage, as well as with physical approaches such as the Mask, and Clowning with Lecoq’s techniques.
I performed in more than 35 shows, classical texts, as well as contemporary playwrights working in Research Laboratories with dramaturgs such as Didier Georges Gabily and Christian Rist’s renowned French directors and playwrights.
The success of some productions I was involved in, with texts such as Marguerite Yourcenar, Soren Kierkegaard, Garcia Lorca, and Tirso de Molina, took me over several years on a national tour and Spain.
Alongside my acting career, I worked as an acting teacher directing many students' shows. I taught in many conservatories in France, leading drama departments and modules and continued in London, where I am now living.
I have been pursuing a director's career, which she kick-started by adapting Henry Bauchau's Antigone into a play she named "Et toi, Ismene" (What about you, Ismene) at the Cockpit Theatre.
I am currently enrolled in a master’s degree in “Actors trainer Actors Coach” at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, where I am to discover The Demidov School pursued as an actor. I am now associate director of the Demidov faculty to promote the work of the studio, actor and director. I believe this technique is a precious gem giving light to high creative freedom.

Please, feel free to contact me if you need to discuss projects. I particularly wish to direct European projects.
