Vibrant and versatile director and theatre maker searching for new ways to stage stories, invigorate visions, create collaborations and provoke preconceptions.
Particularly interested in the capacity of visual / physical theatre, mask work, puppetry and music to reinvent the language and accessibility of theatre.
Enjoys creating work that challenges expectations and questions social and cultural assumptions, both in form and content.
Focused on expanding theatre's reach so that audience members from different backgrounds, languages, abilities and needs can benefit from and be a part of the theatre experience.
Huge advocate of ensemble based theatre work, where the director, writer and designers are major collaborators in the creation of visually provocative and socially relevant narrative landscapes.
