ABOUT

I’m a South Wales based Theatre Maker involved in the creation of theatre and live events, making work as an individual, a collaborator and as a founding member of Tin Shed Theatre Co.

 

Through my practice I aim ti create exciting new work that includes and reaches people who don’t typically visit the theatre.

 

I am also a project/workshop facilitator focusing on working with children and young adults exploring their lives through devised theatre making, autobiographical story performance and creative/experiential learning.

OTHER THINGS

I’m a multi-faceted theatre maker committed to creating high quality performance art for people who might not typically visit the theatre. In my own practice I use play, movement, discussion and a certain kind go ‘laidbackness' to enable others to access their creativity, and I believe that the act of ‘doing’ is the most fundamental part of discovering and making something new. 

As a producer, my work has primarily existed outdoors.
