Founder and Artistic Director of the award winning organisation CircusMASH, created to meet the need of the development of circus in the Midlands region. In addition to maintaining an oversight of the artistic direction of this successful company and school I also freelance as an artistic movement coach, choreographer and circus director, working with a wide range of artists and organisations to create contemporary circus experiences. My current focus is on the synergies between musical theatre and contemporary circus, and I have a particular interest in hearing from others working in this field. I have a strong skill set in creating story through movement and am now researching musical narrative to see where these to worlds completely embed together. A believer in collaboration, through previous projects I have built a strong network across a range of disciplines and countries, and am eager to introduce musical theatre specialists into this vibrant and energetic circle.
