I am currently directing 'LOVE (watching madness)' with SpeakUp Theatre. The next performance is in November at the Tristan Bates Theatre.
I directed STEAM which was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 and Cognitions which was performed at Edinburgh Fringe 2017 and selected for the National Student Drama Festival 2017. With both Steam and Cognitions I was brought in largely for movement and physical sequences focussing on the chorus but also had an influence on the naturalistic dialogue scene.
I work a lot with new writing but have interests in adaptations and traditional stagings. I value collaboration and ensemble and my movement focus provides creative ways into the work.
