Since 2006, my research practice has been aided and abetted by my practical work as a theatre director. All of the photographs featured on this website are production stills from these shows. Most recently, I directed the 2017 Theatre Studies Major Production at the University of New England (UNE): Spring Awakening, by Frank Wedekind in a new translation that I prepared for this production. The cover page of this website features production stills from this work.
In recent years, I have supported the work of colleagues as a dramaturg. Some of this work has included:
- Her Empty Chair, devised work
October 2016, National Theatre of Parramatta and Riverside Theatres (dir. Kristine Landon-Smith).
- Don Juan Comes Back From the War, by Ödön von Horváth (trans. Christopher Hampton)
