Theatre maker | Writer | Performer

  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I'm Winnie, a theatre maker, performer and playwright, with a background in dramaturgy.  

I love concept development, coming up with new stories and finding ways to bring them to an audience. For me, though I call myself theatre maker, that is not limited to theatre. I've done theatre on location as well as film and visual arts performances. Currently, I'm trying to find new ways of bringing narratives to people by using apps, and have started to learn Javascript, React JS (which is what Facebook and Instagram are built with), HTML5 and CSS3. 

I'm always up for new projects and teaming up with new people, so if you've got a great idea and need a partner in crime, got a great job on offer or just need some advice on something you're creating drop me a line.
