2014Union makes fantastic use of the space, uncompromising and confident as actors mill amongst the audience.

2014Kaylie Joy Black’s design is impressive, showing off another facet of the changeling-like interior of the Kings’ theatre.

    About me

    Creative Director of Project Thunder Bucket.

    Director and Designer specialising in Puppetry and Visual Theatre.

    On The Verge Artist 2013.

    Hope Street LTD Emerging Artist 2012.

    I began my career as a Performance Designer specialising in puppetry. My main influences include Horse and Bamboo, Invisible Thread/Faulty Optic and Julie Taymore who direct and design their productions. I believe work that is created in this way has an entirely different atmosphere and visual impact than performances designed and directed separately. Projects I have worked on range from fully devised pieces to full text based projects. I enjoy exploring the themes and inspirations behind a piece and reflect that within the design.

    My work is made, where possible, from recycled materials. This gives a new life to lost and broken objects and provides an antidote to modern technologically focused performance practices.
