Mandy Demetriou

Hon ARAM

Royal Academy Opera - Movement
Vocal - Movement

Movement coach and choreographer for actors and singers at the National Opera Studio and for theatre and TV

Mandy has worked extensively as a choreographer and movement director. Some of her television credits include House of Eliot, Message for Posterity, Out of the Dolls House, Goodnight Sweetheart, Poldark and Plotlands.

She has also worked for the Royal Shakespeare Theatre’s education project, a Shakespearean masque at Queens College Cambridge and for stage on The Madras House (Lyric Hammersmith), Woman Who Cooked Her Husband (Nottingham Playhouse), Pepys (Good Company).

Operas include La Traviata, Don Giovanni, The Wastelands and The Wheel. She currently coaches movement at the National Opera Studio and Royal Academy of Music, and is doing an Historical and Social Dance course for St Mary’s University of Minnesota, as well as movement direction for Osud for Garsington Opera and Bastien und Bastienne for Classical Opera in Germany.

Her work with singers came about after a serious injury ended her performing career but led her to understand and investigate how and what makes the body work. A fascination with non-verbal communication, love of music and performing, and an understanding of the body all seem to place her well for helping singers to use their bodies to support their voices.
