Myself.


As a designer in theatre, I enjoy the element of play, and believe a performance should be just as interactive for the audience as it is for the performers. In my work I like to look at space, how it changes in a performance, how it effects a performance and try to incorporate it into the narrative as much as possible.

I am a hardcore puppetry and mask enthusiast. I have worked for theatre companies such as 'Pointed Arrow' and 'Hope Street Limited', as well as TV 'BBC Horizon' and most recently Music Videos. I like to experiment with different styles of puppetry, also fusing styles together. Most of my work is made from recycled materials as I think it gives a fantastic old haggard dimension to the work.

Hansel and Gretel Research Weekend!


On the 8th and 9th of December, a potential new theatre company (PROJECT THUNDER BUCKET) met for the first time. We were exploring the ideas behind the story Hansel and Gretel and discussing the design ideas I have already had for this project.

We spent the weekend developing ideas and concepts, trying things out to see if they were even possible and just generally just having a good play. 

Here are some images from the weekend of puppets that were made, games being played and projections taking over our brains.

We have all agreed that we will meet once a week in the new year to continue this experiment and develop a performance which we will then be able to tour. I am personally really excited about this new adventure which we are all taking together and hoping everything goes to plan!
