The Sensitised Actor

Laughing and crying for all of humanity - since the beginning of time to the end of consciousness.

My Teaching Practice

The Sensitised Actor is a radical approach to performance training created by Adam Scott-Rowley.


It is an ever-evolving performance ideology, largely developed live in front of audiences as well as during a 5-year teaching residency at The National Danish School of Performing Arts, where Adam continues to work and build on his practice.

The core principles of the method involve an intense training in the following:

  • Mindfulness, acceptance, and compassion

  • Presence

  • Vulnerability

  • Creativity & expressing the subconscious

  • Root & Hiding character creation 

  • The Grotesque & The Existential

  • The Actor as an Artist

Adam regularly blogs on his teaching and research. To discover more, you can sign up to the blog here.
