First class BA Honours Drama and Theatre Studies RHUL
Post Graduate Professional Certificate – Trinity Laban Pilates Teacher Training
Role and responsibilities:
“As an artist I look to facilitate and make work within projects which engage the community and respect therapeutic consciousness as part of methodology. Focusing on the relationship between somatic practices and art making, particularly in developing ethically aware artists, resourcing the performer’s well-being, developing emotional resilience and relational capacity within seeing and being seen by other performers and spectators. Training adaptability in the complexity of how a performer stays connected (grounded, present, aware) to themselves in relation to others and the environment, developing sustainable performative presence.”
Fabiano completed a BA Hons (RHUL) and moved into contemporary dance work inspired by the evolution of somatic research. Alongside performing in interdisciplinary contexts, he has also been practising as an Integrative Bodyworker since 2002 and has taught performance work as well as therapeutic inquiry internationally (Europe, Russia, USA, Iceland). Fabiano has accompanied many people in need of physical, emotional and psychological support. He also works in private practice as a Somatic Movement Therapist (Dip.IBMT, RSMT, Body&Earth) registered with ISMETA.
Fabiano is a movement practitioner and reflective researcher in Higher Education and in professional performance settings, exploring the relationship between expressive moving arts, therapeutic processes and performance. Fabiano is currently on faculty at NSCD and works with Displace Yourself Theatre, Yoga Kula and Yoga Campus. He has previously held faculty positions at GSA Conservatoire, Trinity Laban, E15 Acting School, and Institute for Integrative Bodywork & Movement Therapy.
Fabiano’s current research dissemination offers a mode of performance training and practice that he has developed entitled ‘Orientation Score’ – an improvisational process challenging the notion of neutrality. He has shared this in both performance and non-performance contexts.
