I have recently finished my MA in Opera and Music theatre at the university of Sussex. I'm a composer and musical director and I'm keen to collaborate with a variety of people from all different disciplines. I particularly enjoy working in new opera and writing contemporary music/sound theatre for a variety of spaces.I have written two short musicals ('Playing the Mother' and 'Through the Years') and two contemporary music theatre pieces ('Home, Mum', 'Ein Stück für drei Schauspieler'). I hope to upload some material of these into my portfolio shortly. I am currently researching and writing a street opera to be performed next year.

Hi Ashley. I’m looking to put together a team of composers for a collaborative musical theatre project called ‘Marty Gull’ (Marty[r] Gull[ible]) and hope you might be interested. It's a surreal, satirical, tragicomic piece of musical political theatre: a cautionary tale of school politics, backstabbing egos and the state of the nation. I’ve written the first draft libretto using a medley of melodies in my head from well-known musicals. Intertextuality and pastiche are the key to understanding the ethos of this project.For further details, please check out the group page for Marty Gull at http://www.ideastap.com/Groups/Group/fe0136d4-16d3-4160-8da3-9feb011452fe#OverviewHere's the first song as a hook.
