I believe that the act of telling a story is a sacred event. Though mediums and technology may change, sharing a space and bearing witness to one another is one of the last touchstones that connect us to our primeval selves. I consider the directing of a piece to be a very specific charge – that of the “custodian of the narrative”. I strive to deliver stories to the audience as purely as possible, innovative yet elegantly; whether that means with sweeping special effects or merely the tools of the human body. Whether small or grand, every moment is precious - and my aim is for a short while, for everyone in the space to feel it to be viscerally so. I want to tell epic tales with the subtlety of a motion and a glance. In a word, big stories told simply.
