I am a theatre maker, facilitator and researcher. I work across art forms, often in collaboration with other artists, and specialise in participatory and collaborative work. I’ve recently worked with Ovalhouse, Royal Albert Hall, People United, The South Bank Centre, Magic Me, Mulberry School for Girls & Sydenham Garden. I’m currently working with Paula Varjack on ‘The Baby Question’ and The Academy of St Martin in the Fields on Serenade
I lecture at Goldsmith’s, University of London, where I convene the MA in Applied Theatre.

Ongoing work includes

Settlements, using found and natural materials to create real and imaginary places. Recently working with the Geffrye Museum and Queen Mary, University of London on the Home City Street project.

Intergenerational projects with Magic Me: currently a project about Decorum for Women of the 21st century, performed at the WOW Festivals 2017 and 2018 at The South Bank Centre. Now we (me & Chuck Blue Lowry & Pooja Sitpura & Paula Varjack) are working with Metal in Peterborough and Southend, and their awesome artist Princess Marshall and Elsa James.

Loving working with People United, both on Tate Exchange during half term, on ‘the production of otherness’, and on their third report into collaborative arts.

The Gratitude Enquiry: Three pilot projects were completed in 2016, funded by Arts Council England, looking at ideas around gratitude both as a theme and as an aspect of the process. These projects are now in development for future outings. Get in touch if you would like to collaborate.
