I WRITE, DIRECT, PRODUCE, AND CURATE NARRATIVE PROJECTS

I work across multiple mediums to tell stories about where the law has failed citizens, including:

FUNERAL FLOWERS - a performance piece, depicting the impact of online image-based abuse on a young woman's life, inspired by a true story of a mother's experience of Holloway Prison. First developed as a site-specific piece weaving through a domestic flat, it was then taken on an immersive Offie-nominated London Tour.  I commissioned and Produced its Award winning run, and was Associate Director.

☞ Winner of Filipa Bragança Award for female performance at the world's largest Arts Festival, 2018

☞ Nominated for an Off West End Award, 2019

POWER PLAYs - I am Artistic Director of the Fringe First Award-winning theatre company who tell stories developed through a verbatim practice, drawn from individual women's experiences. Our 2018 showcase of four new plays told stories of ‘rich unsettling drama’ (The Scotsman) gaining 5* reviews (British Theatre) and national press coverage.

MARY MARY - a devised performance piece drawing on medieval trial testimonies, for a sell-out run I directed at The Cockpit theatre.

+CLEAN BREAK  - I collaborated on projects including INSIDE THIS BOX at The Arcola and Clapham Omnibus and their heritage project immersive exhibition with the charity Clean Break who work with women affected by the criminal justice system.
