Director

To create a compelling story, one needs to be present and to be open to inspiration. “Not too tight, not too loose” as my mentor, Barbara Dilley, used to say. To me, this simple quote is a reflection of how I like to create and how I like to direct. Sure, I will have strong ideas and an overall vision, but to me, the real magic happens in the room. I love to see how the actors and designers compose to make something their own. I love when I say “What about this” and they say, “Yes, and what about this, and this, and this!” The “yes and” allows space for inspiration and simultaneously develops a cohesiveness and a confidence amongst collaborators.
