I am an actor and theatre maker who has toured in the UK and internationally, most recently appearing in Heart of Darkness with imitating the dog, which opened in Ancona, Italy in October 2018.
Born and raised in Wigan I had early access to contemporary theatre through my dad's job. As a drama teacher for a local school he brought in small-scale touring companies, and at a formative age I was exposed to Commedia dell'Arte, puppetry and physical storytelling.
At 18 I went to train as an actor at Bretton Hall, where I increased my interest in contemporary theatre and developed my devising skills, specialising in physical and applied theatre.
Shortly after graduating I joined imitating the dog for their show, Kellerman. Since then I have performed and collaborated in six further shows, including A Farewell to Arms in which I played Catherine Barkley, and am part of the core acting company.
Other notable work includes Lost in Memories by Wellcome Trust fellow Delia Muir. The co-devised show explores dementia as a health condition and the act of caring, drawing on a mixture of real life testimony and research.
