I work in theatre because I'm interested in bringing groups of people together. I'm interested in the intimacy between artists and audiences. I'm drawn to the catalytic impact of that intimacy: in giving birth to new ideas and fostering complicity between strangers.
I am particularly passionate about work that is participatory, that encourages an active and engaged audience. I have enjoyed working with several organisations that embrace development: Central School of Speech and Drama, Your Imagination an independent producing company which I founded; Battersea Arts Centre where I was Development Producer and where I have been Artistic Director since 2004, Joint Artistic Director and Chief Executive since 2008.
