I am lucky enough to be the co-founder and co-artistic director of 'Columbina Theatre,' a theatre company that researches the link between Verse text and Commedia. I have worked for over 30 years as a director, performer, playwright, and teacher. I specialise in Commedia dell'Arte and forms of physical and mask theatre. I was also lucky enough to have been the co-founder, and co-artistic director of, Ophaboom Theatre. England's premier Commedia company, it toured extensively throughout the U.K. and Europe for seventeen years. I teach and direct theatre around the globe, and have performed and directed for puppet theatres in London, Norwich, and Devon.
