I’m Trine Garrett and my pronouns are she/her. I’m the co-artistic director of Foreign Affairs, which is just a fancy way of saying that I do half of everything to keep the plates spinning.
I originally trained as an actor, but today I mainly direct and produce, which, to be honest, suits my innate need to control everything, although my practice is very collaborative (honestly!) I miss acting, of course, and once in a while I still get to perform – most recently in The Blind One & The Mad One alongside my ‘partner in crime’, Camila França, directed by a dear friend of FA, Almiro Andrade.
I also teach and facilitate. I specialise in the Meisner Technique and Acting with Passion as taught and developed by Scott Williams and Niki Flacks respectively. A few years ago, I did a PG Cert in Performance Teaching at the Guildhall – I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to learning – and I lead our creative learning programmes, including our ensemble and translator workshops and training, with a focus on pedagogy and practice.
On the side, I do voice overs in both Danish and English (and even in old Norse once, but I wouldn’t say that that’s my thing).
