In 1990, while appearing with Steven Berkoff in Salomé at the Royal National Theatre, George Dillon was asked by the Education Department to give workshops on Berkoff’s Metamorphosis. As an experienced classroom teacher, having trained and had two years’ experience of teaching English as a Foreign Language, George welcomed the challenge and has now led over 260 workshops with students, professional performers and business groups both in the U.K. and abroad.

Based upon his practices as a performer, writer, director, teacher and martial artist (he has trained in Kendõ for 30 years) George Dillon’s workshops are intense, enjoyable and stimulating and are designed to give students a taste of working with and an insight into the thoughts and practices of a professional theatre-maker.

George regards students (of whatever age) not just as exam fodder, but as developing creative artists and his main aim is always to allow the participants to make their own discoveries – to give them not only some immediately applicable performance skills but also a stimulus to continue experimenting on their own creative path.
