My education work involves using dramatic activities to reinforce the National Curriculum and explore PSHE topics in schools. I also work in community settings using theatre, storytelling and movement to explore diversity, creativity, and to build communication skills.
As Tutor for the SpaceWorks Youth Theatre my role includes facilitating the sessions and directing end-of-term showcases. Our two groups of young people are their own theatre company called #KidsinCharge. Together we’ve created some ambitious performances including Wanderland : a promenade interpretation of Alice in Wonderland at the Roof Garden, an immersive Prohibition Murder Mystery and a Christmas show inspired by an traditional Africa tale. They are currently working on a silent movie.
If you’d like to me to create a 10-week curriculum, or a one-off workshop on any educational topic, or to implement a specific theatre technique please get in touch.
I’ve lead theatre and creative writing workshops all over the world, as well as worked to implement creative learning experiences into mainstream education. As an artist I maintain that the arts encourage children to communicate across a broad spectrum and achieve important milestones in their developmental process. Above all I believe that good teaching and learning is constantly occurring and take every moment in the classroom as a lesson in my own practice. I teach through love and passion, not only for my art form and students but also for the idea of education itself. Read my Teaching Statement.
