"Anna-Helena McLean's work as an actor trainer shows the honest process behind the company's stunning theatrical pieces. She brings powerful transformation to students conducting them into the deepest expressive parts of themselves through intense physicality and play, ceaseless attention to ensemble, vocal release, and impulsive bravery. Her Actor-Chorus-Text work is immediate, inclusive, effective and unforgettable".
Dexter Bullard, Head of Graduate Acting at The Theatre School at DePaul University, Founding Artistic Director of Plasticene Physical Theater, Broadway Director and Alumni Director for The Second City
"McLean has developed a genuinely informed, intellectually engaged researching practice as a teacher and workshop leader. She is at the forefront of the next generation of psycho-physical acting investigations, and of embodied research more widely."
Yvon Bonenfant, Head of Voice and Theatre, University College Cork
