I studied Drama and Creative writing at De Montfort University. My dissertation project was research into Theatre of the Oppressed and facilitation, which involved me delivering a six week course of drama workshops with Action Homeless, ending with a forum theatre performance for the services and staff.
I have set up my theatre company, In Your Shoes Theatre, with the support of the Curve Young Arts Entrepreneurs Programme. In Your Shoes Theatre works with different charities to empower and educate their service users through theatre. The company also aims to educate society on the issues that people on the outskirts of society experience. In Your Shoes Theatre first project was the production of my play, Dashing, which toured six Leicester charities and had a public performance at Embrace Arts.
I also work freelance as a workshop leader.
Always interested in hearing from anyone interested in collaboration!
