About me

 

I'm Josh...I like to work collaboratively to create work in which process is highly considered, with roots in both text and movement. My specific interests lie in designing for performance heavily rooted in physicality, in which light can have more freedom to tell a parallel story. I enjoy applying these ideas across all forms of performance as, for me at least, the process of theatre making presents the opportunity to find truth in storytelling. I am particularly drawn to creating visual images that add layers to the work through directness and clarity. I trained at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, where I spent a majority of my time exploring the role of lighting designer within heavily collaborative processes. In order to facilitate this I began a journey of interviewing a wide range of theatre makers about what the process of collaboration means to them. I now want to turn my attention to documenting the what collaboration means for young and emerging designers. I am currently part of The Nuffield Theatre's Laboratory associate program working as Associate Lighting Designer for 2016/2017.
