As a Theatre Maker, Performer and Facilitator I’m involved in lots of different projects. Here I have tried to round up some of the other creative projects I’ve been involved with.
FUNNY WOMEN FINALIST
In lockdown I tried my hand at stand up comedy. I applied to the Funny Women Awards 2021 and made it through to the live finals at the Bloomsbury Theatre in London, which were streamed live by Next Up Comedy. It was an unbelievable experience! My tight 5 can still be watched here.
PIVOTAL- SCULPTURE INSTALLATION
Pivotal was an art installation encouraging connection between people and the natural world. Participants work together finding a rhythm to gain the sweetest sound from the birds. During lockdown many questioned if the bird population had grown, when we had simply become quieter.
Pivotal was made alongside Brian Fell and was funded as part of Festival of the Earth, led by Wakefield Council.
I work regularly with leading UK street theatre company’s such as Pif Paf, Reckless Invention and Faceless (now Edgelands arts). I’ve enjoyed taking acts to festivals and events across the country including Glastonbury.
others (working title)
Others is a new show directed by Thom Monckton, an award winning director of physical comedy from a small town in New Zealand and produced by Prague theatre Jatka78. Others will be a comical production about living next door to each other, delayed by Covid-19 but due to go into production at the end of 2020.

(in)CREDIBLE was a show by That Matt Rogers Project, inspired by John Carpenter’s 1988 classic “They Live!” and the field of experimental psychology, inviting the audience to shape both the performance and how Matt spends the rest of his life.
SUPERNATURE- JAMES WEBB
Supernature was a sound work by South African artist James Webb in 2018. “Supernature” imagines what, over the centuries, the trees on the Yorkshire Sculpture Park estate have been privy to, what secrets they’ve overheard, and what they might say if they could. I provided the whispered voices of the trees- it’s been one of may favourite things!
