In 2015 I founded Amplified Theatre, an accessible and inclusive company that focuses on gig-theatre productions and music driven films, working with disabled and non-disabled artists. I was invited to speak on a panel at the Edinburgh Festival about how I make my work accessible using DIY creative captions. The event,
Demystifying Access, was chaired by Nicola Wildin, who at the time was the Associate Director of Royal Exchange Manchester and was produced by Unlimited. Following this I wrote an article for The Stage about my approach to access as an independent theatre maker. In 2019, Amplified Theatre was made resident company of Zoo Co’s Theatre on the High Street and received funding by Arts Council England.
