Leland Faulkner, internationally known Master Teacher, has been a theatre professional for more than thirty years; his work is crafted from the mime’s physicality, the actor’s imagination, and the magician’s love of illusion. By finding a common ground between these forms, Faulkner achieves success as a performing artist, teacher, and director. His awards range from a National Cine Eagle to Kennedy Center Accolades. Faulkner has served as adjunct professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, consultant for Castle Rock Pictures, and artistic director of the renowned Celebration Barn Theatre.
Faulkner will teach a unique method based on the research and work of Francois Delsarte for uncovering the meaning behind movement and gesture as well as the techniques and disciplines of acting, mime, story, writing, and magic to create a world teeming with characters and imagination.
Leland Faulkner grew up in Africa, Afghanistan and Iran, and has traveled throughout Europe, and the Far East. He studied with a variety of distinguished teachers including master mime artist Tony Montanaro.
