*As a freelance artist my working days and hours vary.
Working with Chris is always a pleasure, he is excellent at building a strong trusting relationship, and managing a room to keep it both productive and fun. He has been incredibly adaptive and flexible, particularly supporting my access needs as a neurodivergent performer. He is particularly skilled at preparing performers' bodies for the work they will do and making adaptations when needed, he is a patient and supportive teacher with creative solutions to challenges across all aspects of theatre. He is a fantastic collaborator and my work on LOB in particular simply wouldn't be possible without him.
Chris’ approach to making movement is collaborative and empowering - everyone in the room felt totally safe and excited to work with him. He brings in the most contagious energy & enthusiasm into the space, as well as unique, creative & exciting visual ideas
He has a “can-do" attitude and an ability to take an open idea and play with it. His openness, energy and enthusiasm make him perfect in a rehearsal space. He empowers other creatives working in a rehearsal room to do their best work and to find joy in working together.
