About your coach, the founder of The Joyful School :

Hi, my name is Pauline. I created The Joyful School to teach what I love, the way I love to teach it. I’m passionate about the connection between physical theater, creativity, and self-development. I love developing my body awareness and using it as a source of inspiration for my creative writing and performing. With The Joyful School, I want to help you develop your acting skills, your body awareness, and your creativity through improvisation and physical theater training. Most of all, I want to help you believe in what you do, reinforce your self-confidence, and feel strong enough to share your creations with the world. In the end, if I do my job well, you won’t need my help anymore…

I am an international teacher, performer and director from France. I have performed in 150+ professional theatre shows (Improvisation, clown, mask, contemporary and classical). From 2013 to 2018 I performed in the successful long-form improv show Le Fauteuil with the company Smoking Sofa. I performed as a clown and physical actress in Requiem for 3 years (2015 to 2017). In 2016, I created and directed Le Fauteuil d’orchestre, a musical and improvised show. I taught, directed and performed improv in 15 festivals (NZ Improv Festival 2017, Improvention 2017, Nelson Fringe Festival 2018, Slovenia Kamfest, and festivals in France). I studied acting for two years at Armel Veilhan’s theatre school in Paris. From 2015, I am mentored by the clown-acrobat Ira Seidenstein (Slava SnowShow, Cirque du soleil, International School for Acting And Creativity in Brisbane). In 2019 I become an official associate of I.S.A.A.C. In France, I am supported by the company Trance Mask France. Unleash The Beast is my third solo show, after two written ones. After a season in Paris, July 2019, I performed Unleash the Beast at The Butterfly Club, Melbourne in March 2020 just before the lockdown.
