I am a theatre artist and dramaturg specialized in playwriting and puppetry. I love engaging with students through physical play, creative writing, and other skills, to explore topics and stories that are relevant to them.

My work is grounded in anti-oppressive politics and practice, my interests in history and fairy tales, and work writing the LBSPSB Report on Diversity and Inclusivity. My theatre company, Théâtre Sous Pression, creates work addressing youth and young adult audiences.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

I facilitate theatrical exercises that nurture students’ ability to express themselves authentically, and validate each students’ innate creativity and knowledge.

- Physical exercises like slow races, and animal work awaken the body and promote exploration and listening to oneself and others
- Freewriting allows students to counter self-doubt and jugement with confidence and inspiration
- Puppetry and Forum Theatre give space for expression and discussion

Workshops can be tailored to address or respond to a specific topic, school work or media. I am well equipped to explore topics related to identity and expression, bullying, culturally relevant and inclusive pedagogy, and systems of oppression. Students will develop their intellectual, personal and social, and communication-related competencies.

“Bringing the body into the work, training participants to humanise creators and one another.” (Felicia Rose Chavez)
