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 in the purest form possible, innovatively yet elegantly; whether that means with sweeping special effects or merely the tools of the human body. Every moment is precious, be it small or grand - and my aim is for everyone in a shared space to feel that truth to be viscerally so. In other words, big stories told simply.
