    About me

    I am a freelance director and workshop leader. I run my own company, Stomping Ground Theatre Ltd, exploring theatre within community settings and promoting equality and inclusivity within artistic forums. Delivering drama classes within primary schools in the South East. In 2013 I will be relocating to the Shetland Islands to continue and develop this work.

    I am a youth theatre director for the Rose Theatre, Kingston and Farnham Maltings, and work for the Almeida theatre facilitating workshops and directing schools residency projects. I have also worked for Hampstead Theatre as their Schools Audiences Practitioner, and have led workshops for the Young Vic. I have taught drama in schools since 2009 for a variety of companies, as well as directing a variety of productions in London venues.

    Professional Recommendations

    Amy Bonsall Director

    I have had the pleasure of both working with Sian and seeing her work. She is an outstanding director who has a particular gift for working with large casts on complex texts. I highly recommend her to any employer.
