Nat and Dani is the name of a new international collaboration between myself and Italian Theatre Maker Daniele Pennati, produced by SJ Watkinson. We all met performing at BE Festival in 2016. A couple of years later we came together again and began making new work.
As a collective we are all passionate about work that crosses borders, and performances that combine different artistic disciplines to create an accessible, funny and moving experience for audiences.
