"The MA Performance Making taught me to think conceptually, question my creative choices and develop a performance that subverts the audience's expectations. My fellow students were from across the globe and had varying interests; ranging from scripted theatre, dance, film and performance art. This diversity made for wildly interesting interdisciplinary collaborations.
Shortly after graduating, I was appointed as Lecturer in Theatre and Performance at Regent's University London. I have been involved in practice-based research in Martial Acting where I explored how an actor embodies presence through the use of Zulu and Maori dance forms. I have also developed methods of teaching acting for motion and performance capture, using puppetry techniques. Currently, I am developing a performance piece called '00:00 (Zero Hour)' that encapsulates what had inspired me at Goldsmiths - a performance that has a strong scenographic influence is metaphoric and transformative.
In 2018 and the summer of 2019, I have been working with Regent's University Alumni and current students on a devised piece entitled '00:00 (Zero Hour)'. The work was first performed at the 'From the Forest Festival' (2018) and is currently undergoing a period of research and development. This research applies my thinking around metaphor, transformation and scenography in performance. From this work, I also designed and wrote three new Regent's University university modules for the BA (Hons) Acting for Stage & Screen."
