ABOUT
TUIRENN HURSTFIELD

Tuirenn is a theatre director, writer (both of plays and articles) and acting coach based in the North West of England. Being freelance sees him to work regionally, nationally and internationally on projects and events.

Initially trained as an actor, Tuirenn began his professional career in theatre before graduating with a First Class BA (hons) in Theatre: Acting. He then worked solidly as a touring actor, director (including as Artistic Director for the CragRats Undermill Theatre in Holmfirth, West Yorkshire) and playwright. In 2006 he then qualified as a tutor and subject leader in Post-Compulsory Education, Higher Education and Adult Education.  Designing and delivering courses in acting – training the next generation of theatre makers.

He loves theatre (almost as much as he loves his coffee and rescue dog Frodo). He is committed to creative processes, both in theatre-making and in coaching actors. As such, Tuirenn is always looking out for the next project or client.

Tuirenn as Theatre Director

His resume and credits are far ranging in style and craft. From contemporary dramas to physical theatre to musicals, from mask performance to classical text. Tuirenn has developed a rich range of directorial skills – dedicated to creating worlds that are effective for audience and production team alike. He seeks to engage his audiences in dynamic and powerful renderings of any text or source material.

As a director, Tuirenn manipulates space, working strongly with performers on their physical, vocal and character-driven connections with the material. He delights in exploiting the rich tapestry of language to develop high quality productions.

Whether creating a brand new devised production or working with classical text, Tuirenn enjoys getting his teeth into the work. The thrill of the script or the experimental form are equally as enticing! He works tirelessly in driving a production to the opening night. See the gallery of his work here.

Tuirenn as Acting Coach

Tuirenn also works as an independent acting coach with professional actors. His goal being to support them hone their existing skills or break into new casting genres. Not just professional actors, he also works with students who are auditioning for drama school.

His style of actor coaching is entirely bespoke to the individual. Tuirenn offers one-on-one actor coaching, using a solid range of acting techniques and acting tools, to support clients. From audition preparation, to developing text/finding a character, to overcoming the many other obstacles an actor encounters. Actor coaching from Tuirenn provides opportunity for performers to find their way to achieving their needs.

Collaborate With Tuirenn Hurstfield

Tuirenn is always seeking new ideas, collaborators and commissions for projects and productions to sink his teeth into. 2019 will see him starting to launch a new theatre company (Northern Rep) together with fellow director and writer, Laura Dove – however, he will be continuing to work extensively across the theatre community. If you have a production project coming up and you would like to work with this fresh and exciting director, Tuirenn would love to hear from you.

Actor coaching sessions are provided subject to timing and availability. There are limited time-slots available in his calendar, so get in touch with Tuirenn sooner rather than later to book his actor training expertise and support your needs.
