Director

“A man walks across this empty space whilst someone else is watching him, and this is all that is needed for an act of
theatre to be engaged.”

– Peter Brook

On directing…

I started directing later in life, even though I studied it as a young actor, and I have come to love it. Instead of crawling inside one character and their world, as a director I get to crawl into the whole world with a wide lens and find the images that represent the meaning of that world and guide actors toward poeticizing it. Images, colors, and movement are important to me when developing a piece with designers and actors. As an actor myself, I love witnessing other actors’ processes unfold, and I use my background in movement to guide them toward fully embodied expression. 

I am also a movement director and intimacy director. I have trained with Theatrical Intimacy Education (TIE) and Intimacy Directors and Coordinators (IDC), having completed their Levels I and II training and working toward the Consent Forward Artist Certification.
