I’m a freelance writer, theatremaker, director and collaborative artist. My works happens in a few different ways. Projects that arise from my own theatre writing, which I make myself as an individual or through my own company, Blank Productions, (usually through getting a grant so that I can make the work independently, occasionally as co-productions or commissions). Directing projects, where I am asked by other practitioners (often writers) to develop and direct their work. Directing projects initiated by myself or with colleagues, particularly in the sphere of ‘live literature’ (a key area of my directing work) or that happen in a socially engaged context (for example, a recent multimedia production where people in recovery from addiction tell their own stories in their own words). Collaborations with artists working in other disciplines, often towards installations or using text in the public realm abut sometimes also towards developing performances. Other activity includes artistic direction of festivals (recently I’ve worked with colleagues to develop a literature/performing arts festivals in a prison in which prisoners are part of the festival management committee).
