About me

I teach on the Introduction to Physical Theatre, Devising Physical Theatre, and Final Year Project modules.

My main area of expertise is in devising theatre in various contexts; from site-specific works, to comunity theatre and multi-media installations. I am interested in making socially engaged work and creating performance in response to specific sites/spaces. I have devised and directed various theatre projects on sites such as the Corn Exchange Building, Leicester, Harrogate Spa Baths, Leigh Woods, Clifton Suspension Bridge etc… with both professional and community groups (Kinesis Youth Company, Community at Heart, ACTA Community Theatre, Touchdown Dance, OUCH Dance Productions, M31 Dance Theatre Company).

My screen work has been shown at various venues and performance festivals: Fragments (Leics), New Works Festival (Leics), The Place Dance for Camera Showcase (London), Yorkshire Dance Festival, BBC Short Film Festival, New Directions, Arnolfini (Bristol), Picture This (Bristol) and Portland Green Cultural Projects (London).
