Welcome to my website. I am a director, and tutor working in theatres and drama schools across the UK.

 

I deeply believe in collaboration as a part of theatre making so you'll find links to many of the wonderful people and companies I work with. 

 

A professional director, tutor and  movement director with a 20 year portfolio of theatre practice, working with rep theatres, touring companies, drama schools, and Universities. An MA in movement studies extending my directorial skill to working in opera and Musical.

Artistic Director RT Productions. Sphinx Theatre Associate Director. Trainee/Associate Director Citizens Theatre 2009-2011. Created and developed The Sphinx Test used in Schools and Colleges across the UK, to explore gender parity. Audition Panelist RCSSD.

I am highly experienced in collaborative theatre making. My creative concern is establishing and facilitating the unique set of conditions a text and company requires. Developing and directing new writing and bringing an expressionistic approach to extant scripts. My practice and skills are designed to optimise creativity in the live performance space. The actors’ embodiment of the play is a core principle.
