Zerafina Zara is your Stagecraft Specialist
There’s a saying that ‘Those who can, do, and those who can’t, teach.’
“I hate that saying, ” says Zerafina
Sometimes, a person can do both, and by doing both, is able to have the inside perspective on the kinds of challenges performers face.
There is no-one else doing this kind of work in Australia and very few in the world. Zerafina empowers artists to make performances that reflect their artistic vision- not the vision of a choreographer. Zerafina draws on an understanding of choreography and use of space (though she coaches movement tools, not choreography) as well as voice and musicality.
Having taught voice and performance internationally, for the music industry and Universities, Zerafina draws on a broad range of learning tools to help groups and individuals become better performers.
