About the instructor

After studying at the Kita School of Noh in Tokyo in 1989, Kameron Steele joined Tadashi Suzuki’s SCOT company in 1990. After leaving the company in 1994, he worked in regional theatre in the US until joining Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center in 1998. During various tours with Mr. Wilson, Mr. Steele was repeatedly asked to lead short workshops in the Suzuki technique until, in 2003, he completed a six-month residency at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico. There he, along with Ivana Catanese and Nathan Guisinger, formed The South Wing company and developed a unique style of presenting the Suzuki method. Lauded as a more balanced and dynamic way to approach this very volatile techinique, The South Wing’s version of the Suzuki method has since been taught in Argentina, Japan, France, Spain, Brussels , Italy, Greece as well as New York and has recently become part of the regular curriculm at several leading theatre institutions in Europe and Argentina.
