About my practice
I am a self-producing performer whose current work is through the independent company, Whiskey & Boots where our theatrical focus is story telling with music.
My current focus as an independent practitioner is in creating new work that is audience inclusive, breaks down the constructs of the audience/performer relationship and is emotionally real.
I am also an arts educator and have been very active in engaging emerging performers in Perth through the Advanced Acting Sessions (2009 – 2016) – workshops designed to connect theatre professionals (directors, teachers, writers) with performers. These workshops were assisted through The Blue Room Theatre.
