My passion is how playfulness leads to creative acts whether on stage or in life. For me this work starts with body-connection, nurturing imagination and being willing to be bold.

 

After graduating from London International School of Performance Art, LISPA, in 2011, I have worked as an actress, storyteller, performance poet, assistant director, casting director, director and independent producer. Including performances at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Theatre Des Carmes – Avignon, Keochang International Festival of Theatre – Korea, The Cube & The Wardrobe – Bristol. I have also directed shows at the Space theatre – London and The Warren – Brighton Fringe.

 

With SynaesTheatre I facilitate workshops at Hamilton House, Bristol, in Storytelling, Clown, and Mask, in partnership with Coexist & CoResist Collective. As well as facilitating Public Speaking workshops, Speaking Out at Embercombe.

 

I associate produce shows with Ed Littlewood and with CoResist – Transformative Arts Programme, for companies such as Theatre Sans Frontieres, The Heroine Project, Public Transport & Sarah Corbett, and The What Works.

 

I am an independent creative consultant for solo artists and small companies, and have recently worked on the creative development of performances for China Blue Fish, Naomi Smyth and Emily Trott.
