Starting Blocks 2022 & The Children are Leaving

The climate apocalypse approaches and Grace Fool, an out-of-work clown, faces her final hour all on her own. Or so she thinks. On Earth's final night, something more life changing than the end of the world sets Grace Fool on an unexpected journey of revelation and hope.

Design by Egon Centrik

From January to March 2022 I took part in Camden People's Theatre's annual artist development programme, Starting Blocks. During my time on Starting Blocks I developed The Children are Leaving.

Working with my good friend Rebecka Öberg, this is an interactive comedy where queer narratives, characters, and confessions tie together with the question we all ask: "What makes me an avocado?"

Hypokritēs

My final year project as part of Rose Bruford College's Divergent Pathways Season, Hypokritēs explored the notion of a contemporary chorus.

Looking at the architectural spaces where the Ancient Greek Chorus performed and otherness within a protagonist, what emerged was an entertaining stream of stories, personas, and dance sequences.

Performers: Jack Boal, Esther Potter, Marie Walker, and Lillian Worden

Lighting Design: Ryan Cowley

Stage Manager: Yasmin Cordelia Brook

Sound Operator: Andrew Crosby
