H-E-L-L-O

I'm an actor, deviser/performer and theatre maker creating work in London and the East Midlands. I was one of The Barbican's Open lab 2020 Artists  and one of Camden People's Theatre's 2019 Starting Blocks Artists.

 

For my own work, I create research-driven, multi-disciplinary theatre. I often use video (live and pre-recorded) and blend autobiographical text with fiction. Thematically I'm drawn to exploring internet culture and and stories around fame & celebrity.

Right now, I'm developing Piece of Me, a new show examining privacy and surveillance (with some help from Britney Spears).

2020 tour of my stage show See-Through has been postponed due to covid-19 and will resume Spring 2022 (c u there).

Over lockdown I was reunited with Zest Theatre and our young participants from our stage show Youthquake to create *untitled. It's a 20 min visual EP available to watch for free on YouTube. Super proud of them.
