I teach on various topics in the areas of dramaturgy, directing, and devising. I use different approaches to convey the basics of good storytelling and empower artists and makers to tell their own stories.
As a freelance facilitator, I have led workshops in-person and virtually for Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Young Vic Theatre, Part of the Main, Collective Creative Initiative, and The Hope Theatre among others.
Hi, I'm Antonia! I am a creative professional and more than a bit of a jack of all trades and I think that's a great thing! The multifaceted nature of creativity today is something I fully embrace. I start every creative project from a point of collaboration.
While I specialize in performing arts and adaptation, I often work with creatives across disciplines to create visual narratives that resonate across time and impactful experiences for stage, screen, and beyond. From staging intimate performances, through immersive, site-specific experiences and large-scale outdoor work, I put the audience experience at the heart of what I do. Currently based in London, my background has allowed me to forge connections in the UK, the US, and Europe.
The most important thing to know about me is that I am driven by storytelling. I have a versatile, open, and collaborative approach to facilitating stories. As a script reader/editor, I have supported dozens of writers dramaturgically on their journey, and as a producer more generally I am interested in connecting with other creatives across disciplines and creating engaging events and experiences.
Get in touch if you have a story to tell and would like to learn more about how we can collaborate together.
In my performing arts research, I specialize in queer and feminist theory, and I have studied extensively methods and approaches to adaptation in contemporary theatre. My approach often incorporates a practice-as-research model.
My MFA dissertation titled "Adieu, Adieu, Re-member Me: A Queer-Forward Practice of Adaptation Exploring Feminist and Queer Temporalities" has earned a Distinction from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
My research has previously been presented as a part of the Theatre & Performance Research Association (TaPRA) Post-graduate Symposium.
