I am a stage director and writer working across new writing, classics, devising and opera. I love making new theatre from real-life stories, and bringing old stories to life. Music and a spirit of celebration sits at the heart of all my work.
My recent performances include When We Collide commissioned by Sky Arts and performed at The Barbican, Sage Gateshead and Snape Maltings, Paradise Planet commissioned by English Touring Opera performing at over 30 venues across the UK, West Side Story an immersive performance at the Savoy Hotel, and Sister developed for Spitalfields Music Festival and Ovalhouse Theatre.
My artistic development has been supported by Snape Maltings (Open Space Scheme), Bristol Old Vic (Ferment), and The Arts Foundation Fellowship (Nominee 2018)
As an assistant director I am currently working on Invisible Cities for 59 Productions, Rambert and Manchester International Festival. I have also worked as an AD at Scottish Opera, Glyndebourne, Welsh National Opera, Regents Park Open Air Theatre, English Touring Opera, Opera Holland Park, Linbury Studio Theatre and Longborough Festival Opera.
I regularly work with composer Alex Groves as Hanbury and Groves. I am currently developing A Time of Listening, a new show about false memory.
