‘A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving’ Lao Tzu


Over the past 25 years, I have had the opportunity to travel widely and have presented workshops and performances, given talks and papers and offered consultancy in a range of academic and festival contexts.


I have also developed ongoing relationships with the Academy of Dramatic Art in Zagreb, the Academy of Dramatic Art in Osijek, and the Dionysus Festival, all in Croatia; ACT Festival and Bai Theatre School in Bilbao, Spain; GIFT and FLARE Festival in the UK; Sibiu International Festival in Romania; the Kosovo Accreditation Agency and the ESMAE Academy in Portugal.


'A theatre exchange visit in 1987 to Bratislava (in what was then Czechoslovakia) had a profound impact on me. I had the opportunity to live and work with student actors from a very different social, political and theatrical tradition. It was in this environment of difference that I first understood the impact of my own cultural context and training and from here began a life-long commitment to creating environments for cross-cultural collaboration and international exchange.'
