Damian’s performance as Antony in Julius Caesar was a feature in the Metsitaba newsletter.  Metsitaba: Meet, Speak, Move is a weekly tech newsletter based out of Ireland and aimed at improving public speaking skills. The newsletter features handpicked conferences, speaker profiles, resources and historical speeches highlighting the ancient art of rhetoric.  And it seems Metsitaba’s September 13 newsletter section titled ‘Learn From the Best’ featured Damian’s performance as Antony in Julius Caesar, delivering the most iconic speech in all of Shakespeare, as a study in the use of emotional rhetoric (pathos).
