“I tend to be quite sceptical about approaches to acting that involve reaching beyond ‘technique’, ‘instinct’ and ‘passion’, looking at underlying emotional or spiritual things, but Andrew’s work cured me of my scepticism. (Or, perhaps, made me realise that I wasn’t so sceptical after all). His work on the Alchemy of acting was truly mind-expanding and inspiring because it showed the way to a potential resource for acting using a more lateral approach, trying to uncover ways in which we might tap in to underlying emotional or spiritual phenomena. These may be culturally-specific to us, but nevertheless they are fascinating to explore and potentially very helpful. The great thing about Andrew is that instead of trying to force-feed you with ideas and ‘methods’, he dangles suggestions and ideas in front of you which, he makes you feel, are there for you to pick up and develop or discard as you see fit. He is keen to stress that nothing is obligatory, nothing is ‘right ‘or ‘wrong’, but that it is all worth a look. A fascinating exploration.”
