Kieran Sheehan 

Kieran has been making performances since 2008 as well as developing a portfolio of creative movement and community projects with innovative partnerships. He works as a freelance movement director and has established a strong reputation as an actor movement tutor.

Kieran develops projects with charities to create ways for the most vulnerable sectors of society to access creative movement processes and develop expression to enhance their wellbeing. He has worked extensively within the following sectors: autism, early years, PMLD, asylum seeking, LGBTQ, recovery and domestic violence communities.

He is interested in the link between the professional performance and community settings he delivers creative movement within and would like to clarify how these links can assist in the creation of fearless and connected work.

Currently Kieran is the Head of Movement at ALRA North who train actors on BA and MA courses, as well as the course leader for the applied creative movement diploma.
