Kelda Holmes
What is your name?
Kelda Holmes
Where do you live and work?
I Live in Bethnal Green and work in North London.
What is your day job?
I am an actors agent (Stage Centre Management) 3 days a week. I also do life modelling and am almost qualified to teach Aqua Aerobics.
How did you discover improvisation?
At the Anna Scher Theatre. As children we improvised in open workshops where Directors and writers could watch and then hire us to be in professional (generally scripted) productions.
How do you practice improvisation?
I practise with an Impro group called Multi-Story, which from february is due to perform on the first and third Thursday of the month at the Camden Arms. I'm also about to start rehearsing for Night London, which is a collaboration between Fluxx and the Actors Centre performing for three weeks in March at the Tristan Bates Theatre.
How did you learn?
I've learnt from many practitioners, Roddy Maude Roxby, Chris Johnston, Sten Rudstrom, Sarita Eames, Remy Bertrand to name but a few.
Any advice for beginners?
Be bloody bold and resolute. Whatever you're feeling and sensing when you are improvising is the material of the scene.
What is your favourite improvisation quote?
Let the audience join the dots.......
The most satisfying story or scene you ever improvised in?
When I played a sheep dog for a Fluxx show called Animal Vs Human. It involved being cross examined by my fellow improvisors and the audience but it was a curiously warm and intimate experience.
