I'm an artist working in writing and performance that creates theatre shows, intimate storytelling performances, performative investigations, walks and podcasts. I work in response to histories of place, people, objects and the way stories are collected and told. I find and tells small stories that hint at wider subjects, live to your face, in your ear in audio, on paper and in objects.
I create self-led projects and productions with long term producer Pippa Frith, work under commission for projects from partners and organisations and I write, performs and facilitates for other independent theatre companies and artists. I am Dramaturg/ Director of Total Theatre nominated Life is No Laughing Matter by Demi Nandhra & Demi's new work The Trauma Show.
My critically acclaimed theatre show Stories to Tell in the Middle of the Night was part of the prestigious Sir Barry Jackson Tour in 2017 and was turned into a bookwork, series of BSL interpreted videos and an 8 episode podcast in 2018. I also made some episodes of Stories to Tell when you Stay at Home.
I'm returning for further research on Me, Myself & Miss Gibbs 20 years after I started the original investigation and all it became. There's going to be a podcast...
I have been commissioned, by Birmingham Rep, Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust, Wiltshire Creative, Penned in the Margins, and the New Vic in Stoke. I was artist in residence at The National Waterways Musuem, Ellesmere Port and at Warwickshire Archives. I have worked as a performer, workshop leader and facilitator for companies including Woman & Theatre, Kiln, Dens & Signals and Talking Birds. She has a BA (Hons) in Theatre from Dartington College of Arts and an MA in Contemporary Performance Making from Brunel University.
