Bio

Julian Jones trained at RADA and has worked as an actor in Theatre, Television and Film for the past 28 years. His work at RBC focuses on the teachings of Konstantin Stanislavski and Sanford Meisner; Elizabethan and Jacobean drama; Contextual Studies; and Dramaturgy.

Julian is Artistic Director of his own theatre company: Burning Oak (www.burningoaktheatre.com). In August 2013 Burning Oak took their production of Royal Court young writer Thomas Clancy’s new play ‘Novemberunderground’ to The Edinburgh Festival following London Performances at the Soho Theatre Upstairs and Theatre 503. Currently developing their second production.

In 2011 Julian and a group of Rose Bruford College graduates ran several workshops with the aim of developing a series of exercises intended to help the actor when approaching Brecht. These exercises constitute the final chapter of Stephen Unwin’s new book The Complete Brecht Toolkit for Nick Hern Books. Julian has a particular academic interest in Ancient Greek Theatre.
