We WON the Audience Award at the Prague Fringe!
Following a fantastic run at the Prague Fringe Festival, playing to a warm and receptive audience we WON the Fringe Audience Award for 'Canary'. Audiences were encouraged to vote for their favourite show on the Fringe website throughout the festival. The company were shocked but delighted and humbled by the award which confirms about the universality of the show and its themes as well as the importance of sharing these women's stories.
I am a performance artist, director, teacher and producer based in Bristol in the UK. With over twenty years’ experience, my passion lies in clowning, physical theatre, circus and street arts. Participation has formed the centre for my work, whether by involving community & artists in the creative process or creating work that asks the audience to become involved. I enjoy the power of the arts to inspire and for people to be active participants in theatre, empowering them to realise their own creative potential.
My skills are many and varied and span arts and event management, production, design, teaching and performance. I am proficient in marketing, PR and business development, with skills in administration, web design and office management. My project management skills incorporate planning, budgeting, tour management & reporting. I am also a teacher, choreographer and director of dance, physical theatre and circus.
My portfolio of work has taken place across the globe, from New Zealand and Australia to the UK and Europe, from Central and South America to the islands of the Pacific.
