In 2017 I Co-Directed the Frantic Assembly Ignition production and residency. I also ran the auction process across the country looking for 12 young men to take part in the programme.

Frantic Ignition is a program aimed at getting young men in to the world of movement and physical performance. I originally took part in the programme myself in 2012 and so it was an honour to be a director on the project this time round. We took 12 boys from across the country and they performed at the Stratford Circus. Everyone who took part is invited back for regular back up sessions with the Frantic Assembly company.
