I am a director, dramaturg, writer and actor. I work in various capacities in the creation and development of new work and adaptation and with a focus on devised, collaborative, interdisciplinary and movement led work.
I am founder and Artistic Director of Flight of the Escales with whom I direct and produce original work for theatre and film.
I trained at Jacques Lecoq and The Central School of Speech and Drama and in documentary film at NFTS. I have
trained further, observed an assisted practitioners and companies including; Complicité, Gecko, Fabulous Beast, Lost Dog, The Wooster Group, Song of a Goat, Yuko Kaseki, Total Brutal, Vanishing Point, NT Studio and Phillipe Gaulier
As a performer, I work mainly as a devising actress, specialising in physical theatre. I have developed projects with companies including; Good Chance, Offstage, Fevered Sleep, Blind Summit, Made in China, The National Theatre, Old Vic New Voices and FanShen. I am an associate artist and work regularly with Tangled Feet and Moving Dust. I am also a puppeteer. I'm not performing so much these days as am focusing more on the other side of things, but do stretch my body and voice bits from time to time.
I've lived and worked in Germany, Spain and France and continue to work internationally and collaborate with creatives and companies around the world. I received funding from the Arts Council and an EU STEP grant to fund research into multi-lingual collaborations and adapting work for an international audience.
As a teacher and facilitator I've taught at various places in the UK and internationally.
