Tas Emiabata trained as an actor at Rose Bruford College, London and has worked internationally as an actor on UK, Australian, and American film and television. Holding an Applied Theatre Master’s Degree from Goldsmith’s College (UCL), and over twenty years’ experience working at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, the main thrust of his work centers on a rigorous exploration of the text, coupled with the use of
experiential 'play' as a tool for revealing and understanding themes, character, language, motivation, staging, and the relevance of Shakespeare’s’ work today.
Tas regularly facilitates workshops and has extensive experience working with a vast range of participants with diverse needs; students, teachers, workshop facilitators, and adults. His international work has seen him deliver and direct Shakespeare’s work in Germany, Denmark, Malta, Buenos Aires, India, The West Bank, China, Paris and the United States.
In his work with the charity Tender (Until the violence stops), Tas
works with students, teachers, and health-care professionals, exploring and promoting healthy relationships in young people’s lives. Tas also specialises in the delivery of bespoke training around Leadership, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, within the voluntary, educational, health-care, corporate
and military sectors. Recent clients include the British Army, the Metropolitan Police Service, The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO), City of London lawyers, The Council for British Archeology, as well as leading theatres and drama schools across the UK.
