Franck Saurel - Actor

I was born in Toulouse in the south of France. Enjoying an early life within the Pyrénées, then aged 21, I joined the le Théâtre du Soleil developing a practise known as 'drums on Digue'. I gained extensive expertise in a range of varied theatre skills as well as learning dance - including 'Commedia dell arte', 'Kathakali', 'circus skills', 'puppetry', 'contemporary dance', 'street dance', 'Latin dance', and 'Capoeira'. These experiences allowed me to develop my body to complete intensive physical performances and also enriching my acting ability.
