I have a genuine love for the transformative and affirming power which is created when people come together to take part. I seek to make work that begins with a conversation, is truly derived from and celebrates people, and surprises us with who & how they really are.
I feel strongly about the platform theatre gives to marginalised people to be seen and heard, to embody who they are, be unique voices, to create a world on stage filled with what really matters to them, and enables them to talk candidly to us about their real lived experiences.
I have a diverse background across design, theatre making and directing.
Projects I have worked on span contemporary dance, new-writing, classic texts and creative learning & participation with young people.
Organisations I have worked with include Tricycle Theatre Creative Learning, Changing Face Collective, Project O, Invertigo Theatre, Young Friends of the Almeida & Islington Community Theatre.
Director - Blyth (new writing by Calum Lynn), Young Friends of the Almeida.
