DIRECTOR | WRITER | MOVEMENT DIRECTOR
I am a UK based award-winning director, writer and movement director working primarily in the creation of new work and artist development. I am drawn to the reclamation of women's stories throughout history, the excavation of familial relationships, and work that has a physical scope.
I directed the final play in ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS, the Chris Bush triptych at Sheffield Theatres in celebration of the theatre’s 50th anniversary, for which I won the Best Director Award at the 2022 UK Theatre Awards.
I co-founded and directed both small-scale touring company Footprint Theatre for over five years and the Young Company (18-25) at Sheffield Theatres for three years.
I am a highly experienced facilitator having led workshops at schools, colleges and organisations such as the Old Vic, Leeds Playhouse, Paines Plough, Derby Theatre, Sheffield Theatres, University of Sheffield, University of Reading and the National Student Drama Festival. I have experience with a wide range of groups, including emerging artists, school groups, artists with learning disabilities and/or autism, adults living with dementia and inter-generational community groups.
I am also an ex-competitive Latin American and Ballroom dancer and teacher and a fully qualified Personal Trainer.
I am represented by Alexandra Cory at Berlin Associates.
