Why do you do what you do?
I live for art that makes a difference, social change, and stirs up a rebellious response. I also live for art that serves no purpose other than to annoy and make a big fat mess. I live for all forms of theatre, and seeing the light and creativity that it can stir within an individual, is a magic worth investigating. There’s a reason plays are called plays, because they bring a lightness and fun and escapism from reality.
What’s your role in SparkFest?
I’m in 3 productions: first, SUPER SPREADER is a mockumentary style comedy that my theatre company have created- we explore drag, outrageous love stories and loneliness. I’m really proud of the team for this one, we’ve never made a film before! I did the marketing for this project and was a driver for the project.
MOTHER TONGUE: directed by the incredible wardrobe ensemble. I got to live out my ‘Miranda Priestly’ fantasy by playing a big boss in this dynamic production. I did a bit of movement choreography in this piece which was a great challenge to make exciting movement within the 2m distance rule.
OTHELLO ONLINE: I have an ensemble role in this classical piece. Which has been transformed into a social media scavenger hunt!
