    About me

    I'm a passionate and motivated female theatre maker.

    My academic background includes a BA in Acting and an MFA in Theatre Directing. I also hold further experience through a fellowship with the Russian Academy of Theatre Arts – GITIS in Moscow as well as researching Balinese Theatre (dance and performance) in Bali. To this list I must add various experiences both directing and acting in freelance projects.

    In my work, I like to focus my attention on female experiences and perceptions, with a particular interest in experimental and political theatre, cross-cultural stories and new takes on classics.

    Since I moved to London, I’ve been actively involved with the Latin American theatre community in London, by sharing our stories, rich in culture and history, seeking to increase visibility of our community within the UK.
