Alex believes that creativity thrives in spaces that prioritize collaboration, inquiry, and personal growth. As a teacher and artist, he relies on structures that support these values, using performance techniques and methodologies to help actors find specificity and authenticity in their work.
For Alex, the key to success lies in building a deep, intimate connection between the body, the text, and the partner. Through daily scales, habit recognition, and self-belief, he helps his students develop a strong foundation for their craft, allowing them to take bold risks and explore new possibilities.
Whether working with students or collaborating with fellow artists, Alex approaches every project with a sense of openness and curiosity, inviting others to share in the joy and magic of creativity. With his deep commitment to ensemble-focused processes and compassionate listening, he creates spaces that are nurturing, empowering, and transformative, inviting us all to become more fully engaged with the world around us.
