During my time here in South Africa, I've used meditation and movement as entry points to performance with my young actors. Imagination and concentration exercises have been foundational in teaching discipline and craftsmanship. I then, begin talking them through their scene-work helping them find their way to the character through questions and propositions.
I am a stage actor, writer and teaching artist from NYC! Currently teaching drama at Dramatic Need in South Africa. Storytelling is my foundation and the root of all creative work. I am traveler and bookworm who loves movies and TV. Nothing excites me more that the study of storytelling.

I hope my letter finds you in good spirits! My name is Raven Cassell, I am an early career actor, writer, producer and educator and I am always thrilled to share my craft with young artists. Since earning a BFA in Dramatic Arts from The New School for Drama, I’ve had the opportunity to study independently, engaging in critical thought and get out in the world and travel, a period of deep introspection. I spend my time teaching and learning and finding new ways to use storytelling as a means to heal the world. As an actor, I have been seen in my self-written and produced science-fiction play, GIRL BLUE (BLUE), Stephen Brown-Fried’s Orestes by Euripides (Helen of Troy), Lamin Leroy Gibba’s By The Way, Meet Vera Stark by Lynn Nottage (Anna-Mae/Afua) and a play which I co-wrote that appeared at New York International Fringe Festival, Dust to Dust: An Inherently Dark Comedy (Sun). I performed in a workshop production of Stevie Walker-Webb's The Journey Between by Korde Arrington Tuttle at JAG Festival in White River Junction, Vermont. I was playwright in residence at the School of Making Thinking: Performance Playwriting program developing the full-length Jazzical, For The Love of Jazz: Playing the Blues. As a teaching artist, I am now in residence at Dramatic Need in Rammulotsi, South Africa through the end of 2018.
I look forward to sharing all that I have picked up along the way!
