Meet Sherlock and The Met Office Man…

Sherlock – Joshua Clarke

Joshua is a second year drama student at the University of Exeter originally hailing from Plymouth.  In the past year he has performed at the Northcott Theatre as a dancer in Carmina Burana and as Dexter in the Footlights production of Thoroughly Modern Millie.  He is currently working as Musical Director for a production of Little Shop of Horrors and is very excited about taking on the physical and interactive role of Sherlock in his home county of Devon.

Met Office Man – Dan McNeill

Dan is an undergraduate Drama student at Exeter University.  He is a committed performer and has appeared in as many productions as possible over the last three years: recent notable performances include Lysistrata; Beowulf; One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest; Voyage to Change the World, at the Barbican Theatre Plymouth and 2012 feature film Hawk(e). Dan is very excited about being involved with the Battle for the Winds project – he missed out on Olympic tickets earlier this year and can’t believe he is going to be part of the Olympic performances in the South West.

Exeter’s lead actress

Here is a bit of information about our lead actress in the procession, Emma:

Emma-Rose moved from Norwich to study Drama at Exeter University. She works as a freelance artist/facilitator, specialising in dance and theatre training. She attended Heather Millan School of Performing Arts, going on to perform nationally, gaining experience in various dance forms, physical theatre, commedia dell arte, Butoh and LeCoq. She is affiliated with Big Foot Theatre Company, DAISI, Magic Carpet, Vital Space Vital Signs, Devon Youth Dance, and Devon Youth Theatre. Further credits include: ‘Carmina Burana’, Northcott Theatre; Royal Albert Hall; Minack Theatre; ‘Judy the Musical’, Edinburgh Fringe; London Symphony Hall; Birmingham Arena; Lord Mayor’s Procession, Norwich; Theatre Royal, Norwich; and Norwich Playhouse. Next year Emma-Rose will be remaining in Exeter, taking her Masters in Applied Theatre.

Emma-Rose is very much looking forward to performing as the lead character ‘Lady of the Wind’ in the Exeter torch procession in May. Over the past three years she has felt that Exeter has truly become her home and feels there is no better way to represent the city than by the torch relay!Image
