I am a creative interested in performance, media and participative methodologies. I work across a range of platforms from community training projects through to installations and performances. I set up the community theatre, art and media company ‘MetaPlay’ in 2005, to give access to arts participation and training to communities and groups. Alongside Metaplay, I have been developing my own site-specific, intimate and audience collaborative works.
I am am co-founder of The Crimson Word a poetry collective for shows and events exploring multi-sensory, immersive and intimate poetry.
I am also a regular performer at The Poetry Brothel London and with The Bloody Poets. I have performed poetry in Barcelona, Berlin, Utrecht, Amsterdam and South Africa.
For upcoming performances please go to Upcoming Shows/Previous shows. These are all ticketed shows.
