    Additional Information

    Most recently I have undertaken Introductory Training with Frantic Assembly and an International Summer School in Physical Theatre with IUGTE in Austria. These built upon my post-grad in Physical Theatre from Royal Holloway/the Jasmin Vardimon Company. Other workshops I have attended include "Margaret Morris Movement - Colours, Design & Well-being" (Sara Lockwood/DanceBase), "Touching the Void: Devising - Autobiographical Theatre" (The Lyceum), "The Poetic Body" (Thomas Prattki, LISPA) and "The Expressive Body" (Kate Hilder).

    From storytelling to aerial dancing, I have played a range of characters from the common cold to the Queen, including a Mum (Middletons', World of Wedgwood & First4adoption), an aristocratic lady (Volpone, Sherlock Holmes II) and an aerial dancer (Prometheus Awakes). I have also facilitated TIE workshops both in the UK and abroad.
