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 (London/Birmingham, 1995 – 2005, with Richard Chew; joined by Cheryl Pickering – later producing as Various People Inc., 2008-present, in Adelaide)
Associate artist, Bodies in Flight (Bristol/Nottingham, 1992-2011, directors Simon Jones & Sara Giddens)
Company member/Board Member, Red Shift Theatre Co. (London, 1997-present. Artistic Director – Jonathan Holloway)
Intermittant company member, Talking Birds (Coventry, performed in 9 projects since 2002. Directors Nick Walker, Derek Nisbet & Janet Vaughan)
Band member, The Modified Toy Orchestra, (Birmingham, 2009-2012)
