The Playful Insurgency aims at relocating playfulness at the heart of our communities.
The insurgency is based on spontaneous, playful and improvised interactions with others in public spaces. The insurgency is open to anyone interested to explore the power of play as a tool for personal and social transformation. There is no expectation other than accepting whatever emerges from the playful encounter with ourselves and others. 
The Playful Insurgency was introduced at The Place Theatre in Bedford in 2019, and at the Bedford Festival Fringe in 2017 and 2018.

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).
