Education & Consultation
Since graduating NYU, Wil stayed close to Playwright's Horizons Theater School, and there he currently teaches a course on Rehearsal Process. He has also served as a guest artist for upper level movement students, collaborating with Witness Relocation director Dan Safer in the generation of physical-based material for the creation of new work. He assisted teacher and actress Elizabeth Hess in her Acting Practicum course focusing of the work of Frederico Garcia Lorca and performing heightened poetic language. Wil has also been an acting consultant for the Creating Original Work (COW) students.
Additionally as a guest artist, he has assisted workshops with Clancy Productions at Rowan University, working with ropes, gags, and bonds, as a part of the Theater of Cruelty, and Theater Mitu/NYU Abu Dhabi, working with the University in devising a new work, which premiered as Abu Dhabi's historic first nationally-produced theatrical production.
After leaving the original creative cast of Queen of the Night, Wil was brought in as a One on One consultant, working with new actors, dancers, and circus artists, in the generation and editing of highly intimate performance in public and private spaces.
Wil has been a monologue and audition coach since 2004.
