is a theatre maker, with experience in directing, performance, sound design, and movement. She has a background in Musical Theatre specifically in singing and dancing, participating in showcases and workshops. This interest fuelled her to further her knowledge in other theatrical forms by studying an Undergraduate degree in Drama with English at Oxford Brookes University. Throughout University, she both performed and helped stage many genres of drama in the theatrical sphere. This work helped her to gain the Pegasus Prize for Drama at her graduation in 2015. This prize enabled her the opportunity to work on her first professional production at the Pegasus Theatre in Oxford, as the Assistant Director of ‘A Christmas Carol’ at the end of 2015. Most recently, Amy has continued to widen her skills with participation in workshops and short courses – including directing. She is interested in interdisciplinary performance with a contemporary approach, constantly challenging and questioning the way performance can be made. She particularly has a love for new interpretations and fusions of familiar stories and hopes to continue to interrogate this in her own work.
WHAT WE DO
We wish to take theatrical and creative risks to challenge ourselves as emerging practitioners. In doing so, we want to push our theatre-making skills beyond what we have previously encountered in our own practice and experience the theatrical landscape of the UK and EU. Experiencing a public response to our touring work, will be useful for our own artistic development, both individually and as a newly formed ensemble.
