directing 

Directing is more than just moving bodies around a stage for me, directing is about creating an environment in which all of the creatives are moving towards a single goal. I draw a lot of my inspiration from Brechtian ideologies of theatre; working through exploration, constantly trying to dig deeper into the play, and creating a horizontal leadership structure so that ownership is shared among the ensemble. 

I use directing as a means to decolonise the canon of theatre through the practical choices of a socialist-leaning rehearsal space, as well as occupying and subverting texts which would have excluded marginalised bodies and voices in their original form.
