Doing the mentorship with Ira was a dream come true. I met Ira in Edinburgh and took part in a number of his workshops. He really is a master of his craft and I loved every minute of working with him. A few years later when Ira announced that he was offering a year long mentorship, even if it was ‘remote’, I jumped at the chance. My life had been in upheaval and I had moved and I really needed to get back into training and performing again while also exploring from a new angle.
The mentorship was AMAZING! It reminded me and supported me in the discipline of daily training, got me exploring the sacred space of improvisation in a deeper way, gave me the base of my confidence back and gave my body, mind and soul the desire to perform again. Everything that we did still reverberates, I am still learning from that time and I know I will continue to do so.
As well as being a circus and physical theatre performer I am an artist and a musician - working with Ira has benefited all of these arts. On the outside it is a performance and training mentorship but on the inside it is a mentorship in life for life. I cannot recommend this mentorship highly enough for any performer from any discipline.
