I have recently been made a 2021-2022 Associate Research Fellow at the Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre with my collaborator Katharina Reinthaller where we will create our new performance project ‘Mary/Marianne’. This piece will be inspired by the lives and work of Mary Wollstonecraft and Marianne Faithfull and focus on the subject of women and recovery.

I am on the Advisory Board of the Dramaturgs Network and am collaborating with other members as a writer and editor on our blog Invisible Diaries, a series of workshop-discussions on digital dramaturgy and a collaboration on The International Dramaturgy Lab with the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, the Fence, the Association of Danish Dramaturgs and STOD (Finland).

I was recently a 2019-2020 LABA London Fellow working in the LABA programme at the 14th Street Y in New York. An excerpt from the developmental preview performance of my play Stills was live-streamed on 6 May as part of Artists Insights. You can watch it here.

My article ‘Indecent: Challenging Narratives of the American Dream through Collaborative Creation and the Use of Memory as a Dramaturgical Device’ will soon be published by the Sorbonne University Press.

My new opera The Agency had a work-in-progress showing on 14 September 2020 at the Tête à Tête Opera Festival. It is available online upon request.
