actor, theatre maker, director, musician, teacher, cogitator
This site is a log of creative endeavours – and a place for idle thoughts; reflections on current and past activities, which I hope will gain a coherence in the doing. In the absence of a dedicated archival website, I hope this will provide the opportunity to not only paint a picture of a complex now-here, but reflect on some significant there-thens.
I am a freelance actor / theatre-maker with a rolling portfolio of artistic associations. I work with the conviction that the more interesting new theatre is drawn out of a process-based collaboration. I have longstanding working relationships with a number of independent theatre companies;
Co-founder, The Resurrectionists (1995 – 2005, with Richard Chew; joined by Cheryl Pickering – now producing as Various People)
Associate artist, Bodies in Flight (1992-3, 2001 – present, directors Simon Jones & Sara Giddens)
Company member/Board Member, Red Shift Theatre Co. (1997-2000/2002 – present. Artistic director Jonathan Holloway)
Intermittant company member, Talking Birds (performed in 9 projects since 2002. Directors Nick Walker, Derek Nisbet & Janet Vaughan)
Since spring ’09 I’ve been a player with The Modified Toy Orchestra
