In times like these I’m certain that every artist is stymied when bloodshed and battery shatter into our daily lives and leave our hearts in shards and pieces.
But after a positively mind-altering on-camera bootcamp weekend, (July 9-10th) my shattered heart […]
One day whilst preparing to teach a practical class (acting class) with my flagship group at the University of Hull, in Yorkshire, England I suddenly stopped and allowed myself to see the wall of 18-20somethings standing in front of me. […]

I can’t tell you how illuminating I found your Q&A to be. I felt so grateful on behalf of the actors that they have you there … You are so uplifting it was truly a joy to spend that time with you. I can’t thank you enough for coming out and sharing your wisdom. Much appreciated,
I cannot tell you how literally LIFE CHANGING that weekend was for me. I went through this week, still pondering, thinking, reflecting. My mindset has changed, not just about acting, but about my life as a whole. I wish I could more eloquently state how or why, but it is a something still ruminating. I appreciate so much your approach to us, actors - your sincerity, how purely you show concern and care, how delicate - yet non-relenting you are with us. You saw a side of me that maybe one other person (my husband) has ever seen... and perhaps not a side, but the realest version of myself. Very few have that ability to get me to open up and bare my soul. I appreciate you. Thank you, sensei.
If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen. If you want to become a Master Chef (metaphorically), seek Nike Imoru. This was my third development session learning from this Master, and it was possibly one of the best investments I could have made. Nike is, in the best sense, human and compassionate, while at the same time being on point, factual, and straightforward business, helping us understand and develop our inner selves. Much of that has to come from within, but this phenomenon, this person, this conjuror, Nike, nurtures, coaches, and extracts the best from us, if we let her.
