BBC Fellowship in Community Theatre at The Old Vic
I was honoured to be on the BBC Performing Arts Fund 32 Ones to Watch for 2015.
As part of the Fellowship I Joined the Old Vic New Voices team for 2015 and worked on two of their community projects. The Fellowship was a fantastic opportunity and one that built a platform for my work in the recent years. It gave me the opportunity to work on some fantastic projects but also to have the space to develop my practice and build connections with an established theatre at The Old Vic.
Assistant Director on Ages
The Old Vic Community Company is made up of 150 talented and outspoken Londoners with something to say about the capital.
Inspired by stories and views of over 200 Londoners and featuring music from the London Community Gospel Choir, Alexandra Woods epic tale challenged our prejudices and dares us to really think about what it means to be old.
Associate Director on the Old Vic Community Writers Rehearsed Readings project, which was part of the Old Vic New Voices Festival. I supported Julia McShane in the dramaturgy of 7 new plays that were being developed by the Community Writers. We cast 32 actors and 7 assistant directors to perform on The Old Vic stage. I was able to direct one of the rehearsed readings and learn from Julia throughout the whole process in how to support and develop new writing.
