CURRENT STATUS

Since completing my training in MA Advanced Theatre Practice (Distinction) at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (2012-2013), I have prioritised creating new performance work that challenges the mundane and plays with the absurdities of life. I am a versatile contemporary performer, with intuitive comic timing, vast ensemble collaboration experience, an acute physical awareness that enables me to excel in dance and movement-orientated performance, and a wide vocal range. In conjunction with performing, I produce the work that I create, and I run workshops for both young people and adults to help participants to utilise their performance skills, whilst focusing on devising and physical theatre techniques.
