Outside Eye / Director / Dramaturg
In these related roles I can come into your process from as little as an afternoon or as long as is needed.
My way of working is to serve the artist by watching each rehearsal or devising session with fresh eyes, then clearly communicating with the artist or team what I am seeing and thinking and feeling.
There is a process of questioning and response that can happen as we work the towards realising the intended creative vision.
I have a very good eye for meanings created on stage and either guiding the work towards achieving its known goals or exploring interesting unintended territory.
I focus on process and connection in my work, helping the makers understand themselves and their ideas more fully.
In this role I have work across a huge range of stage disciplines including:
- live art
What motivates me is a love for artists, audience, the creation of meaning and the shared existence we can find together.
£250 per day for funded work, half day minimum
£350 per day for commercial work, day minimum
PErformer / Deviser / actor / fool
I love performing so deeply and my pleasure at getting to do this work is the engine of my creativity in the room and on stage.
I bring a constantly growing life to my performances, always open to finding the show in the moment with that particular audience.
In solo or ensemble work I remain alive in the moment and sensitive to those delightful connections that complicité can bring.
I have performed across a range of stage disciplines and can access many states of play:
- multiple styles of clown
- physical theatre
- live art
*Fooling is an emerging form, it involves a solo performer who enters the space with no preconceived ideas and finds a unique show that night in the moment as a conduit between their inner world and the audience. It is a powerful and exciting mode of play where anything is possible.
In rehearsals I channel this love into a welling up of creative ideas and flowing dialog and interplay with other people in the room. Sharing ideas and creative space with others is such a rewarding process. If you want to bring a responsive, caring and dedicated artist into your process then get in contact.
£600 per week for funded work, week minimum
£850 per week for commercial work, week minimum
I have a delivered workshops since the early days of my career and I really enjoying passing on the skills of playful performance that I have been taught.
These workshops can be tailored to specific needs when working with an artist or company, or they can be drawn from my collection of existing workshops.
We begin by setting the ground rules that will establish a safe play space, ideal for learning, then we grow together as a group. Then we dive into a series of carefully planned exercises. Of course if we discover that something else is needed then in the moment we can change course and I’ll propose a different set of options for what to do next.

Bid Writing – Access Assistant
I have experience writing funding applications as an access assistant, if you need someone to work with who has previous experience then get in touch. I have a working knowledge of the models of disability and the way in which both people and institutions perpetuate forms of violence towards disabled people.
Following the social model of disability I can see that disability is both socially constructed and enacted as discrimination against disabled people as a group. All of which is to say that you won’t have to do the exhausting ground work or deal with micro-aggressions from me in our working relationship.
I’m also really good at translating creative ideas into good application text, which many successful applications to ACE, Innovate UK, and institutions. The service I provide will take you from initial ideas into a fully submitted application.

The same skills that help me craft narratives on stage enable me to see the through line of an application. Whether you’re looking for proofreading, gentle feedback or a nuts and bolts rewrite I can help.
