It wasn't until beginning my studies at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama that I truly became fixated with the notion of creating. I was so creatively charged everyday, and decided to actively pursue my passion for art, illustration and photography.
My theatre training has taught me about discipline and adaptability, and my time in London has helped me to seek out beauty and wonder in every corner I look.
Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Elysia and I am a creative freelancer currently based in London.
I began my professional journey by gaining experience as a classical singer in companies such as Vivo D'Arte (Parade, Oliver!), The Royal Opera House Community Chorus (Dialogues des Carmélites), The Dorset Opera Festival Chorus (Fidelio, Aida, The Flying Dutchman, La Traviata) and the Linsdale Singers. I also gained experience in directing, performing and teaching theatre as part of Advance Theatre Company (Into the Woods, Oliver!, Side by Side by Sondheim, The Mikado). I gained a DipHE in Opera Studies from Rose Bruford College, and then went on to undertake classical vocal training at Associated Studios in London.
Community, outreach and participation have always been a key focus for me. My parents created the Leighton Buzzard Children's Theatre, a community arts organisation that has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to charity over its 25 year lifespan. So after completing my vocal studies I went on to gain a 1st Class Honours Degree in Drama, Applied Theatre & Education from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Whilst studying at Central, I took part in Applied Theatre Projects with Chickenshed Theatre Kensington & Chelsea and The Rochester Dickens Festival. I also co-founded Patchwork Theatre Company, who toured playwriting workshops around Primary and Secondary all around London
I went on to gain professional experience in facilitating a applied theatre projects for both companies and charities in multiple settings, including; The Royal Opera House (Take Five Summer School), Opera Holland Park (Out of the park Opera, Opera for Thought, Schools Tour and Matinee 2019) and Barons Court Project.
As well as an experienced performer and facilitator, I am also a creative freelancer with vast experience in undertaking a multitude of creative projects, from art & photography to freelance writing. I have worked for schools, corporate and independent businesses, charities, theatre companies and community groups. Thanks to my theatrical background, I am able to offer a unique and versitile approach to all of my creative ventures.
