Between 2013 and 2020, I produced and directed a number of innovative community theatre productions as collaborative theatre making with, for and about the local community.
'Celebration' based on the play by H. Pinter: an immersive performance combining theatre and dining at The Pavilion in Bedford Park (2019)
'A Christmas Carol' based on the text by C. Dickens: a collaboration with Bedford Community Arts Choir at The Place Theatre in Bedford (2017)
'Anna' original text and performance on the impact of austerity policies on local life (2016)
'Come and Go' based on the play by S. Beckett (2015): a performative reflection on disability 
'The Canterbury Tales and Other Travelling Tales' based on the text by G. Chaucer: a travelling performance between different sites and on a bus, part of Bedford Festival Fringe (2014)
'The Mountain Language' based on the play by H. Pinter, a promenade and site specific performance at The Keep in Bedford (2013)

I am a performance maker, visual artist, writer and researcher


​I am the creative director of the Theatre of Lived Experience. I create art work based on personal narratives to foster awareness, understanding and acceptance of one another. My work aims at challenging perceptions, and opening creative spaces for reflection, dialogue and change. It is located at the intersection between the personal and the collective. I am interested in performance art as public and social intervention whereby audiences are involved as co-creators. I experiment without knowing whether it will work.

I am based in Bedford (UK).
