stephanievandriesen. Just had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Chiara D'Anna, actress,

Just had the absolute pleasure of interviewing Chiara D'Anna, actress, professor of theatre and founder of Panta Rei Theatre in her development process of creating her one woman show DON'T YOU DARE which ran at the Tristan Bates theatre last week. I was fortunate to catch this powerful commedia dell'Arte performance exploring themes of mysogyny and persecution of women in the arts in such a provocative and entertaining style as part of the A PIECE OF THE CONTINENT festival of new European theatre works. Following a gut instinct, I was inspired to including our interview as part of my final year MFA final year thesis based on women who were silenced for being radical and ahead of their time. Very Mata Hari indeed. The saga continues... . . Check out Chiara's work and upcoming performance of DON'T YOU DARE in 3 weeks in Torrino, Italy. @chiaradannaact http://pantareitheatre.com . . #theatre #onewomanshow #fringetheatre #tristanbates #london #uk #pantareitheatre #chiaradanna #physicaltheatre #commediadellarte #womenartist #theatreLondon #theatrefamily #devisedtheatre #dissertation . . #StephanieVanDriesen #StephinUK #matahari #interviewers #womeninspiringwomen #womensrights #spanishinquisition #witchhunt

stephanievandriesen. CARTOGRAPHY OF A WOMAN
(explorations of the creative process)

I feel

CARTOGRAPHY OF A WOMAN (explorations of the creative process) I feel like I've been swallowed whole. Like the woman for whom I am writing this for. I've had to give my whole self to her to really know her, and by knowing her I know myself better. At least the side of me that is wild, sensual, uncompromising in desire, and unlimited in loving capacity. Writing my final dissertation on Mata Hari, the spy, courtesan and exotic dancer has been an adventure, and I'm only a week in. Somehow when I made that commitment to deliver my best work by showing up each day eager to contribute to the document, the oversoul of woman was waiting for me, and she took me by the hand. I feel swallowed, loved, and on creative steroids. I didn't need food or water, or even much sleep. Something collosal drives me. I've only got a week more or so to complete this document. Balance between the creative and mundane has been hard as everything I encounter takes on some powerful magnitude, from the wind playing with the hairs on my cheeks to seemingly innocent conversations that turn into deep revelations. Who can live like this? She, this creative being oversoul / guiding force / muse, is patient, and I'm lured to experience her fully. It is her voice that drives not just this document, or the artistic work it is paving for me, but also has revealed aspects of being myself as woman-artist-writer-explorer in ways wonderful, wild and unexpected. Everything is so Hans Zimmer right now omg x I guess this is what it feels to fall in love. (or does it?) 😂🤸‍♀️🌋🌅💪😎🔥❤️🌟😄🤗 . .

Thank yo

Stephano the drunken butler is sad that The Tempest is over! Thank you all so much who came to watch us in this immersive theatre adventure which is one of my highlights of a very colourful career. Playing a drunk Neapolitan seduced by invitations of kingship by Caliban has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences especially with a stellar cast, inspired directing, and the character that is the forest, who bathed us with love and welcomed our performance like a hug! Boxes ticked! For those who couldn't make it, watch our insta live feed of the performance yesterday at @carcrashproductions 🤗🧡 . . Now for some R&R to prep for a big busy week! The weather is lovely 🌅 . . #StephanieVanDriesen #StephinUK #thetempest2019 #stephano #Shakespeare #eppingforest #uk #loughton #london #actor #actorslife #immersivetheatre #shakespeareintheforest #clowning #theatre

Simple Empowerment tip for today: Change your physicality to change your mental-emotional state. What power stances can you adopt to fuel your own self belief? Tony Robbins uses this tip to quickly turn people around from weak, unenergetic and depressive to strong and enabled, and solution oriented. There is also a biological factor to this - when you move, your circulation improves, and your body begins to move lymph and get rid of toxins. And your brain may feel weirded out if you aren't used to standing tall and open like WonderWoman but that's just habit and you're used to the emotions associated. They feel safe and familiar. Change and massive action require you to feel pushed out of the familiar. And only then can you discover what being empowered and taking charge of your life really means. Have a great Friday! . . Pic: Archangel Uriel readies her power swing to supplant some sin! - WE WHO FALL the film miniseries by @fireandironproductions UK is coming out this year! Stay tuned for updates! . .

Exploring the Jurrasic period at the Natural History Museum revealed interesting facts about human potential.

stephanievandriesen. A heart full of love and teary eyed after watching Les Miz for the fir

A heart full of love and teary eyed after watching Les Miz for the first time ever - I waited 19 years for this! . . Ever since playing Cosette in the Young KL Singers' sophomore production Thru the Barricades under Susanna Saw and Mak Chi Hoe in 2002 and then singing On My Own to get into LaSalle College of the Arts, Singapore where I obtained my BA in Musical Theatre, I'm so glad I bought that ticket for tonight. . . The staging was fresh, light handed and really poignant where it needed to be. I think the new orchestrations and direction in recent years perhaps dealt with the ploddy heavy handedness I've heard of productions years before. . . To be fair, the men really shone. Most notably Javert, Valjean, the Bishop, little Gavroche, Thenardier and Marius in his West End debut. Eponine and Mrs Thenardier were standouts. . . And OMG THE SINGING! Voices to die for! . . Verdict: Renewed respect for musicals of that calibre. Fueling me to keep going and be better. I look forward to working harder, going for more auditions and landing leading and fulfilling roles. Watching tonight really cemented the value of me being here and the opportunities open to me here that I would never get in Asia. I am so grateful and happy - so I'm gonna kick me ass to be consistent and really really really good so they can't ignore me. Lukewarm just wont cut it here. People are too good and want it badly. So I must keep that in mind. I believe I will have another shot at Hamilton. And I must be ready. It is precious, and a great marker of excellence in craft and perseverance. What a wonderful world to explore indeed. . .

stephanievandriesen. Physical Theatre is all about the risk. Putting yourself into the hand

Physical Theatre is all about the risk. Putting yourself into the hands of another and trusting completely. Trusting yourself - The only way to successfully create something true is your strength to be vulnerable in the moment to your partner, and to your innermost impulses. . . You become open, present, aware, and creative. You can't hide, because if you do, or let fear block you, the exploration falls flat and is dead. This is all about living fully in the moment. Giving and receiving. . . I loved working with Elinor Randle of @tmesistheatreliverpool yesterday at her #physicaltheatre workshop with a super talented group of 9 other actors! . . Watching Beyond Belief last night, Tmesis Theatre's performance at Jacksons Lane Theatre was a powerful piece of theatre commenting on the loss of humanity in the possibility of living forever thru digital consciousness. . . #StephanieVanDriesen #StephinUK #actortraining #actingtips #actortraining #grotowski #actorslife #Actors #successtips #hustle #neverstoplearning #growthmindset #skills #bameactors #bameartists

Got called in early coz someone before me didn't show! Omg, that got my heart thumping, I thought, use that for Eliza in Helpless! . . But my voice got caught in my throat, so I probably was quite flat (shit!) on the oohs and I do's, but I bounced back . . Number 2. They perked up when I went into the story part of Helpless, and it ended with my voice really opening up on the big note at the end. . . I thought, ok, now we're in it! They looked interested. Like, okay, show me more! . . Number 3. I ask for a moment to prep for Angelica. I say out loud she is a beast of a woman, so I gotta get in her headspace. They agree. And then we're in. I'm committed. The story is clear. I see Eliza on the right, Alexander on the left, and myself in the middle. And I'm caught between my love for her and my duty and love for Hamilton. . . All three of them are watching me now, catching the story as I make one thought transition to the next. I'm clear, nuanced, heart open, head and eyes alert. I see his eyes and they see what that does to Angelica. . . It's over and they all smile and take a breath with me. It feels great. I ask them if they would sign my audition score! . . THEY SAY YES. . . Now I gotta park this an get ready for my Sondheim competition heat next Monday! Lol no rest for the wicked! #ilovemylife . . I will let you know as soon as I get word!

YOUR SUCCESS IS DETERMINED BY THE POWER OF THE INTENTION BEHIND YOUR ACTIONS #SuperstarSecrets . . Are you living on purpose or autopilot? . . Are you affecting those around you positively? . . Are you affecting those around you, your employees, your environment, in the direction of the results you want? . . Very often we are unaware of the effect we are having on every aspect of our lives, but really we can take charge by taking some time to direct our thoughts . . CONTEXT: Actors dissect a scene in a script to ensure that their characters achieve the outcomes their way, and they play hard for it, with HIGH STAKES, and the Actor's job is to stay on top of it, and make clear choices so that their character's Voice and Body are crystal clear, to play the Actions in the scene, creating a successful scene which the story and audience will enjoy. . . How does this relate to you in your life? ... Well, what if you could dictate your life much more the way actors do for their characters, leading and influencing towards a successful outcome with proper tactics tailor-made to your success? ... I'm holding a GUERILLA FREE ONLINE CLASS tomorrow FEB 3 at 10AM GMT / 6PM (Malaysia / Singapore time) to give you some powerful tools from the actor's toolkit to kickstart a prosperous Year of the Pig 2019!

Turning an audition song into a moment in a character's life ~ . . In this case, Beyonce's "I Was Here" into a moment for Eliza Hamilton. . . Brings me back to the "Marilyn and Me" process that Dennis Yeap @theboywhosinned, my director, co-writer, and I shared when we brought Marilyn Monroe to life in a one woman show at Theatre Lounge Cafe in 2015. . . In many ways I've found that for some reason beyond my comprehension, I find myself giving voice to characters who are based on real life figures who impacted our history, and in some way shaped the world we live in now. Without them, we would not be who we are now. . . This process brings me immense joy, and now finding Eliza's thoughts, wants, desires and Voice through Dianne Warren's lyrics, is like mining for gold, and then melting it down and reshaping it like clay in my hands that have East 15, LaSalle and my 12 years as a professional musical theatre performer has brought, with a hip hop muscularity that Beyonce leads. . . What a challenge! . . Time to sleep now, 11.51pm London time folks. . . Can't wait to share more on how it goes! #StephinHamiltonUK . . #StephanieVanDriesen #StephinUK #conquering #goforit #hustle #dowhatyoulove #singing #singers #hamilton2019 #hamiltonwestend #auditioning #hamiltonuk #london #uk
