Biography

I am second year coordinator for Creative Research on the Performance and Digital Technologies programme at Wimbledon College of Arts. I teach at all undergraduate levels and on the MA in Theatre Design, including dissertation supervision.

My research focuses on contemporary performance in a British and European context, and investigates concerns in gender, identity, translation and adaptation. I am also a practicing literary translator, and have translated several contemporary plays and novels from Hungarian and Romanian into English. My translations were published by Seagull Books, appeared in 'Words Without Borders', 'Asymptote', 'Index on Censorship', 'World Literature Today', and were staged on both sides of the Atlantic, most recently by [Foreign Affairs] in London and Theatre Y in Chicago.
