MOVEMENT EXPERIENCE

Currently completing the 'Movement: Directing and Teaching MA' at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. Before that, I completed a BA at the University of East Anglia. During my BA I worked as an assistant and co-director with a specialism in movement and later just a movement director. 

 

I have trained in dance for 18 years (Ballet, Tap, Modern Jazz, Acrobatics) and so also work as choreographer. I have experience choral movement, devising, movement for new writing, street theatre and an interest in using movement to explore and express emotion. 

 

I co-directed STEAM which was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 and Cognitions which was selected for The National Student Drama Festival and went to Edinburgh Fringe 2017. Both Steam and Cognitions used physical theatre to explore emotional turmoil and intense themes such as domestic abuse (STEAM)  and mental illness and alcoholism (Cognitions).
