Job Title/ Company: Actor

Date of Case Study: June 2020

Biography: After graduating I spent a year in London, working and applying to American graduate schools. In 2014, I moved to the US to study for an MFA in Dramaturgy at the Yale School of Drama, after which I moved to New York in 2017 to work in the literary department of the off-Broadway Signature Theatre. Throughout university, I was heavily involved in the student theatre scene, taking professional acting work during the holidays. In 2018, I decided to pursue acting as a profession, getting my first off-Broadway job that same year, allowing me to attain an 01 visa, for “Artists of Extraordinary Ability,” in order to remain and work in the US. Since then, I gained my US Equity card and was most recently in the Broadway production of Martin McDonagh’s Hangmen, which premiered at the Golden Theatre, Times Square in March, 2020, and played for 13 performances before closing indefinitely due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Graduated: 2010
Job Title/ Company: Theatre Maker
Biography:Bertrand Lesca is a theatre maker from France. After studying at Warwick University, he went on to assist Peter Brook and Declan Donnellan on several international tours.

Recent projects include IT DON’T WORRY ME, a collaboration with the Spanish Catalan company Atresbandes to make a piece exploring political correctness across cultures, and THE END a dance piece exploring the breakdown of their own working relationship set against the backdrop of an imminent climate catastrophe.
