Hi, I’m David


Hi, I’m David

I’ve lived in London for 40 years

I speak English

I am a Film actor / Live-art curator / Drama Fascilitator


I'm a Londoner, an unreservedly British-European orientated towards cities. All cities. During my early life I lived and worked on the periphery of British culture whilst travelling extensively throughout Europe afterwhich I attended various acting / movement workshops and courses specialising in improvisation notably with the Dancer /Choreographer Lindsay Kemp who's protégé's included David Bowie and Kate Bush and 'Louder Than Words' the physical theatre company. In 1987 I attended Middlesex University where I took a Performance and Communication Studies degree following which I founded 'Puzzleclub' an Arts Council-funded 'Live-Art Club'(1994-99)whilst intermittently travelling to Eastern Central Europe as an unofficial representative of numerous UK-based filmmakers, writers and contemporary musicians. In Juvenile 2013 I facilitated Improvisation workshops in within the prison system in Lithuania and Romania. I'm currently a curatorial adviser to ARTA Cinema, Cluj-napoca Romania and an occasional film actor. My slightly zigzaged and /or 'unscripted' approach to life remains at the core of everything I do and informs how I experience London's dynamic cultural mish-mash both 'official' and lesser-known beneath its surface. It's THIS London, the London I love that I'd hope to disclose, to "crack-open" for my foreign guests. I live in South London with my French partner and 12-15yr old children.
