AboutContact

Hello

I am a storyteller, sound artist and promoter based in London.

Stories

theatres, galleries, schools …

Recent performance projects include In the Winter Wood at London’s Polka Theatre and story workshops with Story Storks Heritage (for children); ‘Alternative Tarot’ storytelling with the Crick Crack Club (for adults), and London art gallery White Conduit Projects. I’m currently preparing new work for the British Library and the Moon 50 Festival in London, and for summer fringe festivals across the UK. I’m open to story-related opportunities and adventures of all kinds, so –

Sounds

sound art, noh

A practitioner of noh since 2012, I am a member of Theatre Nohgaku and co-producer of the Noh Training Project UK. 2019 projects include new English-language noh Phoenix Fire (Ryogoku Bear, Tokyo), Emily, and traditional noh Atsumori (Tara Arts, London).

Sound art commissions/venues include the Hundred Years Gallery, the Groyne Gallery, and Desire Lines (Threads Radio).

Spoken

narration, radio, shivers


As a vocalist, projects include writing and live v/o at Kings Place (Noh Reimagined, 2018), narration and sounds for literary event series Shivers, alongside my own experimework. Current and recent projects include spoken word with Errant Stage, and poetry for They Came Before Us: A History of Women of Colour in the UK (Collage Arts, London)
