Theatrical Movement &
Posture Workshops
I am a qualified tutor teaching postural control to the students at Oxford Brookes University and also onsite at Oxfordshire
Following my time supporting visiting companies in the theatres for the past 14 years I have developed my 'Theatrical
Movement & Maintenance' workshops to provide specialised advice and self help techniques for actors and dancers.
This bespoke workshop has become invaluable to ensure that the performers are taught how to decrease the chances of
pain and discomfort caused by physical overuse, maintain their own flexibility and also how to treat each other for muscular
tension which is invaluable when they are touring.
More theatrical productions are booking my 'TMM' workshop during their rehearsal stages and also through their tours with
companies including the Oxford Playhouse for the last 10 years as part of their annual Oxford Pantomime production and
the Birmingham Stage Company, who produce the stage productions of David Walliams books 'Gangsta Granny' and 'Awful
Auntie' and regularly book me to provide my 'TMM' workshop at their rehearsal studios in London prior to their national tours.
‘Chris has done brilliant work in helping our cast and crew get through physically demanding productions for over 10 years now.
His expertise has helped them to not only recover quickly from injuries, but he is also able to spot potential injuries and offer excellent advice on
how to prevent them.
As a result, our production staff have suffered many less strains and physical problems than may be expected on a show.’
