Upcoming Performances

Airswimming in Switzerland in February and April

I'm over the moon that this is becoming a reality! Together with Playades Theatre Company
I'm hard at work. I'll be playing Persephone/Porph in this German language production of Charlotte
Jones' Airswimming in Switzerland.

Horu-Fröiä

Great news - Horu-Fröiä, Playades' new play about the first women to climb the Matterhorn,
and other Alpine pioneering ladies, has been commissioned for a tour in Switzerland in late 2015!
We're currently working on bringing an English version to the UK.
For more info, check out the PLAYADES website.


A few words about myself

I have a passion for Jacobean/Elizabethan theatre, including, but not limited to Shakespeare.
Although it started with Shakespeare. After years of "not getting" Sheakespeare, feeling that
watching Shakespeare's plays were more on an intellectual exercise in trying to understand the
words, I was fortunate enough to be taken to the Globe by a friend in 2005. As groundlings
we watched _The Winter's Tale_ directed by John Dove. And suddenly it all made sense.
The time passed and I forgot I was standing. I was entertained - engrossed by the characters
and the action on stage. No longer slave to trying to decipher every word - but simply
enjoying the story as it unfolded.
Since then, I've seen other great actors and directors create amazingly accessible shows
with classic texts - not by dumbing down the texts, but by putting
the telling of the story for the audience at the centre of their mission.
These are the kinds of classical productions I'd love to be involved in.

I also have a big love for contemporary theatre and new writing. Because it's new and fresh.
It hasn't been said that way before and because I'm part of that creation process.
I enjoy devising and dancing on the edge of "not knowing" - exploring, playing, discovering.

I love audiobooks and radio plays.
And films. :)

In short, my overarching passion, as an actor, is to be part of a storytelling endeavour
that puts centre stage the telling of a story for an audience.
Regardless of the origins of the "text", or of medium, or of budget.

News 2015

Candoco Dance Company
I am super-excited to have been selected for Candoco's International Summer Lab this August. Taking their professional open classes at Greenwich Dance this past week, has only increased my enthusiasm and chuffed-ness (is that a word?) to be playing, dancing, and exploring more with them this August. (June 2015)

New Representation
As of May 2015 I am represented by Denmark Street Management.

Object Love
I'm super excited to be performing with Dissolve Theatre in Chloe Mashiter's newest play
Object Love, a play about objectum-sexuals,
people who fall in love and have relationships with objects.
You can find out more about the play on the theatre's website.

For more information and tickets, head to the VAULT Festival website.

2014

Absolutely loved working with Nick Cohen on the Lock In (short). There's a screening forth coming - watch this space.

I had so much fun as stroppy Discord and furius Juno with the amazing cast in John Lyly's _THE WOMAN IN THE MOON_,
at The Rose Playhouse, with The Dolphin's Back, directed by James Wallace.

Two shoots in one week, a new short film "Boyfriend vs Girlfriend"; and a viral for a clothing brand.
Also greatly enjoyed a two-day workshop on Shakespeare's language with the inspiring and amazing
Eamon Haughian. (August 2014)

Very excited to be participating in Peta Lily's three-day
Clown and Dark clown workshop in July 2014.

Played Isobel in a workshop production of an excerpt from THE TORTOISE -
(a new play by Naomi Westerman, directed by Katharina Reinthaller),
as part of the Seize the Stage festival at the RichMix, organized by All the Rage Theatre Company,
in April 2014. Can't wait to read the full version.

Such a buzz to be the vocalist in James Ernest's newest play CATNIP
at the Arts Theatre Leicester Square in March 2014.
What an amazing ensemble - can't wait to take it more places!

Loved performing in RED, a devised piece directed by Young Vic director Isabelle Hatton,
as part of Freshworks at the Young Vic in December 2013. This is not the last we have seen of RED,
watch this space.

Cindy has just finished playing the role of Asteria(Meroe) in PENTHESILEA at the
Edinburgh Fringe Festival for Playades Theatre Company which received
5* Reviews.
