I am a performance designer and theatre maker working across theatre, dance, film and installation, currently based in London, UK.

With interests from proscenium stagings to experimental devised works, I want to create live performance that is both relevant and reflexive to a rapidly shifting industry and society, questioning what an essential theatre for this generation might be. Physical theatre, movement based work and immersive space forms a great part of my performance background, and I am eager to pursue collaborations with choreographers and experimenting directors. 

 

I engage in intensely collaborative, driven and active spaces, hoping to hone my understanding of design language as theatre craft, and the intrinsic role it plays in our partner, the audience's, experience.
