Apocryphal Theatre ensemble member

I was a core member of Apocryphal Theatre, resident company at Camden People's Theatre which was a highly experimental, international, cross-disciplinary theatre company made up of performers from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Whilst creating full-scale productions, festivals and other events for the public, the weekly lab remained at the heart of the exploration. Performances included work in galleries and theatres plus university residencies and a live broadcast for Resonance FM from the Tate Modern.
