I make theatre with young people and community groups, mainly in Leeds but I can and do travel to work across the North of England
I have regular employment with Leeds City Council to work with adults with physical and sensory impairments. Our work reflects our experience of life; Our shows are not always about disability but it is always informed by it. We aim to inform, inspire and entertain. By raising the barriers to participation, we raise the bar. Full Stop.
I run Youth Theatres in Leeds for a small local charity (Youth Theatres Leeds). We work together to hone our theatre skills and create performances for community and professional theatre venues. Through theatre we raise our confidence, self-esteem and aspirations.
I worked for Open Minds Theatre Company In Rotherham running the Company for Adults With Learning Disabilities- LifeAct. LifeAct meets weekly to build our skills for performance and for life. We pride ourselves on our professionalism and inclusivity. Life is not a rehearsal we have to act now!
I run after school drama clubs in Leeds and have taken on commissions to devise work for specific events across the region.
I specialise in devising theatre based on people’s experiences and aspirations. Together we are better.
