Plays, Musicals, Devised Pieces, Special Events
SDC associate member. I am most passionate about new or newly re-energized prices of theatre that excite the imagination, stimulate conversation and provoke real emotional responses. Equally comfortable with small two-handers, full-scale musicals, collaborating in a devised process or crafting a unique one-night only gala or benefit.
Dance and Movement
SDC associate member. Trained mostly in jazz, contemporary and tap. My work is also heavily influenced by my continued practice in Viewpoints, Laban effort shapes and clowning. The body is always telling a story, without ever having to say a word. Harnessing that potential is what excites me most as I aim to make visceral experiences that can change the energy in a room.
