Since moving to London in 2010, I have taken part in new and innovative productions from new musical theatre writing to contemporary circus, immersive theatre experiences to Shakespeare. I have worked with internationally recognised companies and creatives who constantly aim to redefine theatre through provoking staging and modern stories.
As a Director I'm keen to explore actor-musicianship in productions, and I particularly enjoy developing new musical theatre writing as a Dramaturge. I also work training amateurs and practitioners of the future through workshops on acting-through-song and textual analysis.
The curiosity to chart the unknown has driven me to take up various roles within theatre fuelling my passion to understand this fascinating world we call theatre.
