I AM CURRENTLY...
I am currently the assistant director for THE HOUR WE KNEW NOTHING OF EACH OTHER by Peter Handke at the Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh - co-directed by Wils Wilson and Janice Parker
THE HOUR... is a play without words, narrated by music and animated by unspoken interaction. This production gives the simple pleasure of people-watching a vibrant dramatic life as the audience weave a narrative out of the everyday scenes of a city. It is being performed by the residents of Edinburgh! More info below...
Earlier in the year I directed award winning performance poet Leyla Josephine in the reworking of her first solo show HOPELESS. The show is an incredible piece exploring what it actually means to try and make a difference in the world... and it is currently on a UK tour. FULL DETAILS here
