Having been introduced to The Nine Viewpoints whilst undertaking his masters at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama and undertaken workshops with both Anne Bogart and Mary Overlie, Richard has continued to work with the practice both as a maker, trainer and coach. He has taken his practice to numerous institutions and taught it as a skills class and used it within rehearsals to build ensemble and develop theatre language.

from the sublime to the ridiculous

COMING SOON

Richard will be launching a new series of his 'From The Sublime To The Ridiculous' workshops for professional actors, looking at ways to free impulse and make dynamic choices.

These workshops will play with the body in space, improvisation and script work, exploring the concepts that everything is information for the actor, that everything goes through the body, and striving to never find balance.

Through this practice, which encourages the actor to use pleasure as their guide, you will work to unearth impulses, impulsiveness and intuition to discover in the doing. This work will shake the cobwebs off your process and enable you to find a freshness in your performance each and every time.

This series of workshops will be offered on a drop-in basis and discounts will be offered for block bookings.

Places will be limited at each session. Sign up for advanced notice when booking opens.

Richard is the one to go to.

 

Practical, accessible advice.

 

He has the patience of a saint and is as sharp as they come!

 

His advice on movement for actors has been invaluable to my theatre company!

FAQ
Acting Coach Richard Delaney Leading a Viewpoints Workshop
  • Where are the in-person coaching sessions conducted?
    Sessions can be held at Richard Delaney's home in South East London, your home, or a central London studio. Options are tailored to your convenience and preference. Each location and service has a tailored price and rate, so be careful which session you book. These sessions can be rigorous, and to enter the 'spirit' of the work, Richard always recommends working at a studio where possible. The price of Studio hire is included in the fee, and, usually, Theatre Deli is used for these sessions. Alternatives are possible, but they may be subject to surcharges. Enquire with Richard directly for further information (richard@richardddelaney.com). If you choose to work at your home and have Richard travel to you, it is advisable to have some space that you can move around in freely and where you won't be disturbed.
  • How can I book a session at a studio?
    If you're happy for Richard to do the legwork for you, it couldn't be simpler: just select One-To-One Coaching at Studio, and Richard will take care of the rest and provide you with details of the location once confirmed. Usually, Richard uses Theatre Deli for coaching as it is easily reachable, accessible and cost-effective. It is close to Bank, Monument and Tower Hill Stations. If you would like to book a studio of your own, Richard can arrange a discount on the advertised rate of the studio sessions. Please contact him in advance of booking to discuss this option. If you wish to explore bookings at other studios, contact Richard for pricing details and availability.
  • Are there any discounts available for in-person coaching?
    Yes, under-18s, low-wage individuals, the unemployed (including those in strike action), and Equity and Spotlight Members are offered discounts. To obtain a discount code, email Richard at richard@richardddelaney.com. You can also save money by buying a package and committing to a block booking. These sessions can be purchased directly through the website and include a built-in 10% discount. Please note: for in-person studio coaching, the studio hire component of the fee is not subject to a discount. Many services, when booked, can earn you loyalty points, which can be redeemed against coaching. Be sure to join the site to keep up-to-date on discounts, offers and to take advantage of those loyalty points.
  • What's included in the free 20-minute online consultation?
    Our free online consultation offers a chance to discuss your goals, aspirations, and training needs. Richard will outline how in-person coaching can benefit you, with no obligation to commit. It's a great opportunity to get to know each other better, and this important stage forms the first step on your bespoke coaching journey to increase the rigour of your craft as an actor.
  • How do in-person sessions enhance dynamic choices and unearthing impulse?
    In-person sessions, especially at the studio, provide a playground for exploring impulses and unlocking dynamic choices. The physical space fosters heightened awareness, allowing for uninhibited exploration. The greater provision of space, allows us to explore more tools to shift the body and, consequently, your practice. Playing with tempo, for example, becomes infinitely easier in these spaces. There is also something helpful surrounding the 'ethos' of the work when we set up in a studio. Whilst the comforts of home can be reassuring (especially if you're new to this), nothing beats the gear change that occurs as we 'cross the threshold' to work (and play!), and this can always be seen in the practice.
  • Who can benefit from in-person coaching sessions?
    In-person sessions are suitable for everyone, from seasoned professionals to newcomers. Drama school applicants and those preparing for auditions will find these sessions particularly beneficial. They are particularly good for those performers who want to embrace holistic development in their practice. Acting is physical; what shifts us psychologically will move the body - and vice versa! Having the space to play ensures that the work doesn't just sit in a cerebral, academic setting.
  • How does in-person coaching support craft interrogation and exploration?
    In-person sessions offer the perfect environment to delve into your craft, consciously interrogating your artistic choices. This intensive exploration empowers you to deepen your craft and make bold choices. With the additional space and without the restriction of the Zoom screen, we can begin to explore a greater range of practices and approaches that can be matched and paired with your own preferences and learning style.
  • What are the long-term development options available?
    For those seeking long-term growth, discounted block-booking packages are available. These packages provide a structured path for continuous development, allowing your craft to evolve over time. They are perfect for those that are genuinely interested in shaping their process and taking their work to the next level.
  • How can I secure a spot for in-person coaching with Richard Delaney?
    Booking a session couldn't be easier! Head straight over to the online booking page, select the service you're interested in and book a time convenient to your schedule. Whether it's a session at his home, your home, or a Central London Studio, there's something for everyone and for every budget, allowing you to find a suitable time and location.
  • Can I leave a review after my coaching session?
    Yes, your feedback is greatly appreciated. You can leave a review on Google by visiting https://g.page/RichardDDelaney/review. Your reviews help others discover the value of Richard's coaching.
  • What if I have specific questions about in-person coaching?
