I have been working as a Frantic Assembly Practitioner since 2012, and have worked with many other youth organisations, and companies. Below are some of the companies that I have worked with doing outreach work.
I also run freelance workshops. These include:
Approaches to Devising
Movement and Physical Theatre Practice
Investigating Dennis Kelly’s DNA
Monologue Preparation for Auditions
If you would like to enquire about a workshop for your organisation or school, please feel free to contact me for more information on details and rates.
I have been with Frantic Assembly since 2014 as a Practitioner. In this role I have travelled round the UK, and internationally. I have ran workshops on ‘Devising and Physicality’, ‘Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time’, and ‘Frantic’s Othello’. I have also ran multiple residencies in schools, universities, and with professional companies. These residencies range from 3 days to 2 weeks, and in that time we create a brand new performance with each company. I also co-directed Frantic’s Ignition in 2017.
National Youth Theatre
In 2016 I was awarded the Bryan Forbes Award by the NYT. Since then I have continued to work for the company in various roles. I have ran R&D projects with members, including work with VR and 360 video. I have ran workshops that have partnered my productions of DNA which are still available directly from me. I have also run the Movement Casting workshops for the current members of the company.
Movement with ALT Training
ALT was a training and showcase programme headed by director Toby Clarke. ALT’s aim was to showcase BAME and working class young talent, for which it saw incredible success. I ran movement and devising sessions with 2 cohorts of the company.
REWIND is an intervention programme ran by the Lyric Hammersmith for young people aged 11-16. The programme partners with educators who have identified ‘at-risk’ young people, and works to equip them with skills through drama classes, exercises and games. I worked with one group over a ten week set of sessions once a week. The group went on to create a sharing performance for an invited audience at the Lyric.
