"I would highly recommend anyone who is intending on playing challenging characters that can trigger past trauma to consider using ACES as a method. We worked through a series of visualisations and character separations which had an empowering impact on my performance".

“Not everyone is very concerned about the actors mental health. [ACES] built me up as a person to begin with so that I could handle whatever was going to be thrown at me as the character”.

"The energy was completely different after we did the exercises. I was at ease and in character. I felt fluid and more real. One of the best improvement tools I added to my acting".

"Wow…wow. Yeah, it was there. [the emotional life] was all there. This is…Wow… Something I’m gonna need to do for all my characters. I’ve got a lot of different work that I do but I think this one is really important to add”.

ACES prioritizes Resilience, Boundaries, Defence Management & Self-reflection. 

[ACES] breaks it down and gives you those tools that helps focus [my character’s emotional states] and it also separates them [from me]. ‘I’m not that. Miranda isn’t that’ but it’s still there bubbling underneath. [ACES can access] all those layers and that richness in the character."

"It was lovely to acknowledge my strengths and to explore my relationship to them and the purpose of those strengths and how they can serve me.  I thought that was quite liberating really.  To look at myself in that way and to view myself in that way from a personal development perspective and a self-awareness perspective. That was really good."

Oliver Devoti/London

"I now know the kindness we have to give ourselves as actors before we go into any kind of emotional work.”
Joshua Addington, London
