Things I adore: Cafes, cordless vacuums, looking at creatures close up and when people give a voice to animals.

Things I do not adore: Rush hour, throwing things out and the sound of coat hangers clanging together in a bag.

I’m a freelance theatre-maker, performer, clown, physical comedian and creative arts facilitator. Born in South Africa, raised in Manchester, now living in Wakefield.

I studied Theatre and Performance at Leeds University (Bretton Hall) graduating with a First Class Honours in 2008. My time at Bretton was where my passion for theatre met my love for nature and the visual arts and my unique practice developed.

I make performance work that embraces the honesty of clown performance and the complexity of being human. Beautifully researched, with a balance of storytelling, absurdity & powerful visual moments. My work is entertaining and challenging in equal measure, acknowledging the audience and creating a relaxed environment, where no one is the expert.

I was co-founder of Uncanny Theatre with whom I toured for over 9 years to theatres and festivals throughout the UK, including The Lowry, HOME Manchester, BE festival, Transform Festival, A Nation’s Theatre, INcoming Festival and Gateshead International Festival.
