I have been working as a freelance workshop facilitator and events coordinator since 2009. After leaving Dartington College of Arts, I pursued my love for theatre and the arts. Through working freelance, I have had the pleasure of working with a variety of artists and companies. When touring with Forkbeard Fantasy, a multimedia theatre company, I discovered the possibilities of using multimedia within theatre. This not only kick started my love for animation and film making, but gave me an insight in to the integral workings of a touring company. I have also attended masterclasses run by Theatre Ad Infinitum, Mick Barnfather, from Told by an Idiot, Nofit State, Aitor Basauri (Spymonkey) and attended the Jaques LeCoq summer school in 2010 (Paris).
These experiences developed me as a creator of theatre and I still use these elements in my day to day work.
I frequently work for Actiontrack performance company. Actiontrack are a community performance company that have been running for 25 years. Their aim is to create spectacle through music and theatre, whilst giving young people the opportunity and confidence to explore their imaginations and allow themselves to become the creators of a show. My main job role during this process is to help the young people turn their ideas into a structured show, by acting as director, script writer and choreographer.
Over the past two years, I have developed my own events company, Creative Carnival. I am the founding member and events director. The organisation grew out of reaction to the budget cuts within the arts. The ethos is to prove we can keep going on producing fabulous arts events, for free.We have put on events ranging from a four day music festival, to a Masquerade Ball, and includes our own devised production; Welcome to the Dollhouse.
My role within Creative Carnival, covers a range of responsibilities, including marketing, artists liaison, design and stage management. I am so enthusiastic about the process and product and push myself to the limit, so I can make sure that each event is a success. Off the back of Creative Carnival, I have been headhunted by other companies to help produce their events. These include Temwa (a Bristol based charity) and the much loved SouthBank Arts Club (Bristol).
Since moving to Bristol, my love for circus has grown. I have started attending aerial classes at Circomedia, so I can learn how to fly through the air, and to understand the technical side of circus skills. I believe to produce the best work, you must understand every side of the event.
