My artistic practice as a Creative Producer takes a critical view of social, political and cultural issues. I am passionate about devising new work that highlights the power of empathy and its ability to encourage audiences to become active allies in their own communities. While I have produced a wide variety of shows ranging from site-specific to traditional proscenium-style plays the element of empathy is at the core. I believe art can be used to tell a story and provide someone with an experience different from their day to day interactions. When art is executed with a social justice lens it can be used to bring to light the issues that go unaddressed in our mainstream society.
