Projects per year
My career combines academic teaching and research with professional theatre practice. As an actor, I have had an extensive career in UK theatre, and have recently returned to professional practice, performing with Bell Shakespeare Company in King Lear, The Stork Theatre in Razing Hypatia, and Malthouse Theatre in Sappho...in 9 fragments. As a director, I have worked with Harrogate Theatre, UpFront Theatre Company and have been Artistic Director of the Cambridge Greek Play, directing acclaimed productions of Trojan Women and Electra. My practice and research actively fosters interdisciplinary links between Classics and performance, and my current research projects investigate affective ways of interpreting classic/al texts through performance. My teaching practice includes positions in Classical Studies and Drama departments in universities in the UK and Australia. I was the Judith E. Wilson Visiting Lecturer in Drama (1998, King's College) and the inaugural Leventis Fellow in Greek Drama (2001, Peterhouse) at the University of Cambridge, and have also taught at Bretton Hall, York St Johns, La Trobe and University of Melbourne. I am currently Senior Lecturer and ARC Research Fellow in the Centre for Drama and Theatre Studies at Monash University.
