What’s in a title?
I direct. I devise. I facilitate. I write. I dramaturg.
I make theatre.
Originally from Essex, I’m now based in Glasgow after training for my BA Acting at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. I am currently studying for my MA in Art and Social Practice at the University of Highlands and Islands alongside my work.
I make theatre that is movement-based and uses allegory as a lens to explore the themes of community, grief, and responsible use of power. I am interested in collaborative models of working that flatten hierarchies and blend artforms. I believe strongly the audience is an integral part of the conversation in theatre, and I place huge value in ensemble-working. Moving beyond 2020, I am developing tender, ambitious and moving performance that boldly places elements of participatory work in the framework of the production.
When working with other artists, my skills as a facilitator, storyteller, and dramaturg are a central part of the process in both devised and script-led work. As well as my own projects, I am regularly working with artists to guide their vision into existence, such as Satellites and Forelska. I am excited by creating moments of surprise; whether that be in rehearsals, workshops, or productions. I am inspired by sculpture, and illustrated and graphic novels.
If you would like to chat about a project I have worked on, or a project to be, I’m always open to conversations and coffees.
