I have joined DMU in 2020. I love working with undergraduate students and supporting them to find their own interests and discoveries in theory and practice. In the last few years I have specialised in teaching contemporary acting and performance practice, including teaching at University of Warwick, University of Birmingham and Glasgow Kelvin College.
My research specialism is in actor training; specifically clown at Ecole Philippe Gaulier. I have experienced training with Gaulier in the areas of Clown, Bouffon and Le Jeu. I care about the place drama and theatre has in the world, what are the philosophies and politics contained in the stories being told and retold, what impact participating in theatre has on individuals professional and amateur, who is listening to whom and how drama can open our hearts to others.
