Mark Winstanley

I trained at the Welsh College of Music and Drama & the Ecole Philippe Gaulier. 

I have a passion for teaching clown and am curious about work that has a playful connection with the audience.

As a performer I work closely with A Ship of Fools Theatre Company creating bouffon theatre that seeks to shine a light onto the dark and shadowy bits of ourselves that we find difficult to admit to. 

In 2016 I started the "That's not funny cabaret" to raise money for Mind and City and Hackney Mind. I am also the creator of "The Southend Fringe Festival" 2016 a student led theatre festival that sought to empower students with production skills.

I trained at University of Salford, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and I am a qualified yoga teacher.

In my work as a teacher I support students in developing a more playful, impulsive and versatile body.

As a freelance director I work closely with Les Femmes Ridicule developing their show "In the Gut" which deals with the dilemmas women face around childbirth.

Over the years we have taught workshops, masterclasses and modules at many of the top theatre training institutions in the UK including:

The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, East 15, ALRA, ALRA North, Birmingham School of Acting, Circomedia, 

The Guildford School of Acting, The Royal Academy of Music, Northampton University, Colchester Institute, The University of Salford, ICAT, The Actors Centre, Contact, Physical fest, 24/7 Theatre festival and more. 

"Just the kind of refreshing experience an actor needs. great fun, great folks, great teachers"
