Adam Scott-Rowley

Adam trained at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). He is an actor, creator, performance practitioner, and director. He is the creator and performer behind the multi-award winning and internationally touring show ‘THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT'.


Adam's creative focus is to kindle compassion in the most unlikely of places. He practises this by defying traditional theatrical norms and creating confrontational, unsettling, utterly ruthless form defying high-intensity art.​

As a practitioner, Adam works at The Danish National School of Performing Arts where he teaches and directs his theatre and performance methodology; ‘The Sensitised Actor’. He has also taught at Copenhagen International School of Performing Arts, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Mountview, ArtsEd, and the National Youth Theatre. Adam is fascinated by the interplay of mindfulness, creativity, Buddhist psychology, and performance. He utilises these elements in all aspects of his work.


Adam is a qualified secular mindfulness practitioner and is authorised to teach mindfulness by the Mindfulness Association; having completed their Mindfulness, Compassion, Insight, and 2-year teacher training pathway. His teaching adheres to all aspects of the UK Good Practice Guidelines and he holds a Postgraduate Degree in the Studies of Mindfulness from the University of Aberdeen.

​Adam is currently co-creating a one-man show with British theatre director Ned Bennett for production in 2024.

His new show YOU ARE GOING TO DIE premiered at VAULT Festival in March 2023. It then completed a month-long run at Summerhall for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, before departing on an international tour beginning in Denmark. The show returns to London in 2024 at the Southwark Playhouse from 18 April to 4 May.
