In performance

The only thing I enjoy more than performing is collaborating on a performance. At the 2016 TEDx Queenstown, I crafted a piece about how it is to connect and then a crowdsourced response text completed on the same day. You can watch it here:

My freedom camping farce It’s Your Shit was performed most recently at the 2019 UNESCO Short Play Festival in Dunedin. I’ve also written a dark comedy about post natal depression, which premiered in Wanaka and toured around Central Otago. I am currently developing a script for the 2021 Festival of Colour.

Since 2017, I’ve been writing Christmas pantomimes for the Wanaka Pantomimers. Working with director Gilly Pugh and casts of professional and local actors, we’ve created a modern take – the antimine – on Christmas favourites Cindy and the Vilanelles, Jac (who is resilient) and the Beansprouts and Sno Whyte and the Seven.
