Performer

I am an actor and spoken word artist with an extensive background in devised theatre. I have worked in theatre, film and radio, as well as appearing as a guest on various podcasts and radio stations. I love storytelling and the many different forms it can take. In the theatre, for example, I love building a rapport with the audience. As such, I also have experience in both interactive and immersive theatre.

MUR/MER – Sadler’s Wells

But the stand-out, most resonant, work is Elsa Chêne’s MUR/MER. The Brussels-based theatre director presents a beach scene with no beach. Towels laid out, bikinis, inflatables and sunscreen; a gradual gathering of people with their backs to us, facing a non-existent sea. And instead of the sun, just grey light, eerily slow movement freezing into tableau, and a creeping crescendo of white noise.” – Lyndsey Winship, The Guardian
