Bethan Clark

Fight Director / Intimacy Coordinator

Bethan is a Fight Director working in theatre and film and a Senior Teacher with the British Academy of Dramatic Combat. She combines her work as a fight practitioner with intimacy direction and coordination.  

She trained initially as an actor on the MA Classical Acting at Drama Centre and BA Drama at Exeter University. She worked in the industry  for a number of years before moving into fight direction and teaching.  Additionally, she has extensive experience as an applied drama workshop facilitator and worked in prisons for 5 years using drama as a creative and explorative outlet. 

This combined industry experience and drama facilitation background informs her work and provides the foundation of her practice: inclusivity, kindness, supported challenge, collaboration and creativity.
