About me

I work as a Performer, Maker, Facilitator and Senior Lecturer in Performance.

  
My background is as an actor/maker in screen & movement-centric devised theatre with my company, PINCH.

PINCH toured nationally and was supported by Bristol old Vic and The Place, London.

At UWE;
  - I Module Lead on 'Introduction to Physical Theatre' at Level 1. 
 - I tutor on 'Introduction to Actor Training',  'Devising Physical Theatre' at L2 and on L3 Devising Project, ('Final year Project').

Independantly at UWE I seek out collaborations between disciplines and departments and usually make a short piece with graduating students every year that respond to these.

Most recently, I directed a full scale Harold Pinter Double Bill for L3 students, and in July 2023, I co-created a collborative piece (Still Life) between Drama and Fine Art Students in the development of a Performance, Exhibition and Sound Score sharing at The Arnolfini.

Within my teaching I am partly inspired by Growtowski's ensemble tradition and work with my students in finding honesty, vulnerability and freedom in their work.  I seek to empower students in their creativity, expression and most importantly, their play.

I teach across all three years on the BA and often work with students several times throughout their degrees, allowing for a depth to the working relationship that benefits both the students and the work.

I also work with the Careers Department and support students in their career decisions and Post Graduate pathways.

Externally to UWE I am an External Examiner for the BA (Hons) Theatre and Performance at Falmouth University which provides rich discussion and sharing of best practice into Teaching for the field. 

Area of expertise

I specialise in movement and devising and have a particular interest in working from an inter-disciplinary perspective with regards to form and content, and incorporating text and sound into the work.
