About Me

I'm a theatre director, born and bred in Cardiff. I have lived and worked in lots of exciting places, from Brazil, to Sweden, the USA and all around the UK. I love theatre that directly connects with an audience - whether that be a new play written by an up and coming writer or an experiential piece of devised theatre. The important thing for me is what happens in the space between the performer and the audience - and how the audience are involved in the piece.

A Survivalist's Guide to Edinburgh Festival Fringe: Top Tips

I'm in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival with Dirty Protest's "Sugar Baby" by Alan Harris. It's the end of week one of the largest arts festival in the world. I'm in our hired accommodation; which I'm sure is student digs for the rest of the year but festival hire allows the landlord to pay off his mortgage in the 31 days of August. I'm…

Loved DG&W it was such a great event. Thanks for letting me know all about it and it was great to have a chance to contribute to it too. Met some fab folk and the workshops were brilliant.  Thanks for coming to "Mementos of Leaving" it was great to see you there and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. See you soon! Love and light, Sion xxx

aw cheers - see you Sunday lovely! mwah xx

No problem, I'm glad you accepted my request!

Yes I'm hoping to network a little and find some opportunities on here as at the moment I am just completing my course and would like to get some experience actually in the industry. I really enjoyed your workshops actually and your ideas helped myself and my friend Jared when we had to prepare a performance for an assessment the weekend just gone. I haven't been doing much else since, as I said, I'm looking for opportunities at the moment, but I am writing more with the aim of submitting work to competitions and theatre companies. How have you been? Are you working on anything new? :) x

Hi Catherine. Few questions regarding next Sunday. I will be using friends for this event. Is it preferably script in hand or learnt? Also - anything else need prepared, a synopsis perhaps for the compere? Thanks x

thanks catherine. i have just sent you a message too x

Hi Catherine, I tried to message you as per the instructions, but it said we needed to be friends first?

(I don't mind putting my email here though, it's: thechaogoesmu(at)gmail.com, and the play is called "coming and going")

HI Catherine,  thank you for your message! Yeah it i something I am interested in - how do you mix the two, or give both ways of creating theatre a platform. I would really like to be involved in the discussions, however I'm only able to get to Cardiff for a few hours on the Sunday - so in case any travel things go wrong - I wouldn't like to sign up to anything and then let people down if you get me? But thank you for the offer! Beth x

Thanks Catherine - I will see you there!

Hi Catherine, thanks for your message.  Yes, I'd be happy to contribute to the discussions on the 12th by providing a few sentences to kick off a debate.  Given a choice between the two I'd probably opt for the post Scottish referendum one.  Let me know what kind of time slot you were thinking of - just a few minutes, yes?

I'm hoping to set up a symposium at the Atrium before the end of the year where the founder members of Scotland's National Collective are invited down to speak, so it'll give me a chance to mention that.

Thanks
