COLLABORATIONS AND PAST WORK
Over the last 18 years, alongside being a freelance actor and director, I was co-artistic director of Fools Proof Theatre Company, creating and touring 3 shows: The Eagle Has Landed, Je Suis Dead and It’s Uniformation Day. I was also co-artistic director of Tuebrook Transnational, and I continue to be an associate artist of world renowned outdoor theatre company Periplum.
With Periplum (Claire Raftery & Damian Wright) I performed in and collaborated on 451, The Bell, and a 1000 Revs and performing in The Witching Hour, 7 Alleys, Homecoming, #WeAreAllSpartacus and Arquiem. Experiences which have allowed me to tour the world and be part of some of the best outdoor work produced in Britain over the past 15 years.
Press reviews for Fools Proof's work
‘‘...splendidly crazy and strangely life affirming.’
‘Like a poem... Every movement, tone and syllable is packed with meaning...There is only a story, told with muscle and sinew and sweat. If that isn't theatre, what is?’
THE BALTOMORE SUN
‘...a highly original concept, passionately developed. The play is thoughtful, provocative, demanding and funny.’
‘...ambitious mad cap and inspired.’
I also worked as co-artistic director of Tuebrook Transnational when I lived in North Liverpool, creating 4 site specific projects: A Brook Of Dreams, Journeys Through The Brook, Re-Writing Tuebrook and Little Libraries Big Stories that looked to re-imagine the local area where we lived and challenge negative perceptions of the area.
