I’m an experienced freelance producer with an interest in the small-scale, experimental theatre, intimate performances in unusual spaces and clever work for young people.
I am part of TOOT, on the board of Dante or Die and work with a collective of artists and producers transforming the disused St. Mark’s Chapel in East Brighton into a development space, called The Spire – a place for emerging theatre makers, community collaboration, live events and experimentation.
I work amongst a lovely bunch of freelancers above the marvellous Marlborough Pub & Theatre.
Over the past six years I’ve had work supported, commissioned and programmed at venues and festivals across the UK including Shoreditch Town Hall, Brighton Dome & Festival, South Street, The New Wolsey, The Lowry, Cambridge Junction, Camden People’s Theatre, Ovalhouse, Wales Millennium Centre, Pegasus Theatre, Harrogate Theatre, BE Festival, Pleasance Edinburgh, Assembly Festival and Latitude; and internationally at Brisbane Powerhouse, Melbourne Arts House, Intrepid Theatre and De Spil.
In the past I’ve worked with artists and organisations including Brighton Festival, ArtsAgenda (Derby Feste), the Nightingale (Dip Your Toe), The Plasticine Men (Keepers, L’Autruche) and Boogaloo Stu (Pop Magic), as well as IJAD and Lorraine Bowen.
More recently, I’ve produced the work of Il Pixel Rosso (And the Birds Fell from the Sky, The Great Spavaldos), fanSHEN (Cheese), Kefi Chadwick & Mark Maughan (How was it for you?), Old Salt (I’ll Keep Waiting for the Ice Cream Van to Come), Dumbshow (Electric Dreams), David Shepherd (Hard Graft), Flexer & Sandiland (Disappearing Acts) and Brighton People’s Theatre.
Between September 2012 and December 2014 I was the Producer at Ovalhouse – where I was lucky enough to work with artists including Christopher Brett Bailey, Rachel Mars, Jamie Wood and Emma Frankland.
I have also made inclusive theatre work for children and young people – Battleship Island premiered at The Basement in April 2012, as part of Brighton & Hove Children’s Festival and toured in Spring 2013 (South Street Reading, Norden Farm Centre for the Arts and Chickenshed).
