Here are a few short clips from some smaller projects I’ve been working on. They all have an emphasis on physical work and choreography.

‘From Me To You’ and  ‘Out of Sight’ for Frantic Assembly’s Ignition

Two examples of work on Ignition for Frantic Assembly: ‘From Me To You’ 2013 and ‘Out of Sight’ 2008. I co-directed on these project with Scott Graham, Neil Bettles and Eddie Kay at Stratford Circus, 2013 and at the Lyric Hammersmith and Toynbee Studios, 2008. The shows are part of Frantic Assembly’s Ignition program that aims to find and train young men, 16-20, to work as physical performers.
