I am a theatre maker, a collaborator, a movement director and teacher.
I make my own work and collaborate with many companies including Tangled Feet (associate Artist), Upstart Theatre (Associate Artist), Moving Dust (Associate Artist), Angel Exit Theatre (Associate Artist), The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Royal and Derngate, Bath Theatre Royal and many more.
In 2017 I made the first iteration of my ongoing project about role models, called Marco. It was performed at Stockton Arc, Bike Shed Theatre and Shoreditch Town Hall.
2018 starts with work collaborating with Theatre Hullabaloo, devising and performing with long time theatre associates Tangled Feet on two existing shows, and movement directing for Company Three with their piece The Act. I will be working alongside the incredible Jennifer Jackson creating the movement for Paines Plough's summer body of work. And, hopefully, begin the process of making Kids Do Nothing, my new work looking into small marginalised young communities within larger marginalised communities in rural market towns. There will be skating, grazed knees, drinking Woodpecker Cider, swings, and arson... I think.
As a movement director I have worked such theatres as Theatre Hullaballoo, Tricycle Theatre, East 15 Acting School, The Roundhouse.
I currently teach movement studies at Identity Acting School.
