Term 2 2017 Poster

Theatre maker

I began my professional career in theatre as an actress and trained at Theatre Nepean.  Early acting credits include Company B, Bell Shakespeare and many others.

My first experience of directing  was with Epicentre Theatre, with a Titus Andronicus laced with contemporary text and East Asian vocal and physical influences.  I produced Macbeth for Quasimodo, directed by Gareth Boylan.  In 2001, I left for the UK playing Juliet in Romeo and Juliet for Mu-Lan Theatre followed by several roles touring for the UK based international touring company Yellow Earth Theatre. 

Yellow Earth encouraged my directorial ambitions and I participated in YET and the Young Vic’s extended series of workshops led by Rufus Norris, David KS Tse and Matthew Dunster.  I directed Benjamin Yeoh’s production of Yellow Gentlemen at Oval House.

I produced, developed and directed Journeys by Rosaline Ting at The Ambassador’s Wimbledon Studio.  Following this, I directed and developed Rosaline Ting’s play for children A Girl Named Shining Brightly for Polka Theatre’s Playgrounding season.  

I continue to write original work for young people and a highlight of my teaching involves devising plays with participants.

Teacher

Teaching Drama is one of the great privileges in my life.  

After gaining a BA from Theatre Nepean and then a Grad Dip Ed in Secondary Teaching (Drama/English) in 2000, I found myself performing and teaching in the UK. Early acting credits before moving to the UK included work with Company B Belvoir, Q Theatre and Bell Shakespeare.  Later, performance and directorial credits included Yellow Earth, Company:Collisons with National Theatre UK, Leicester Haymarket, Oval House Theatre, BBC Radio, Wimbledon Ambassador’s Studio, and Polka Theatre.

Although I’ve taught drama since 2000, last year I offered the Beecroft Drama Workshop for the first time.  I loved every second there, meeting and working with the participants.  It’s my little haven, a studio dedicated to creative performance for young people.  In 2017, I’ll be able to provide additional workshops for younger students.  It’s going to be a lot of fun!  Have a look at the Workshops page if you would like to join.

There’s also the option of private lessons at my home in West Pennant Hills.  I enjoyed coaching junior and senior students during my last three years at PLC Sydney and Loreto Kirribilli, preparing them for Speech examinations, eisteddfods, and inter-school competitions.  For those who thrive on challenges, working towards ASCA or AMEB examinations can provide a great scaffold for learning.  For further details contact me.
