Who am I?

My name is Rohan.

My pronouns are he/him.

I am a director and writer. 

Come find me telling stories in Cardiff, Dorset, or East Anglia.

Since graduating from Birkbeck with an MFA in Theatre Directing, I have worked around the UK - predominantly in Dorset and London. I'm the Artistic Director of Dorsetborn, an associate company of National Youth Theatre. The company enables me to create new plays that explore the contemporary Dorset voice onstage. 

I always want to ensure the arts are accessible, thrilling, imaginative, and diverse. I don't come from a background that encouraged me to engage with culture, but I've benefited hugely from seeing and creating live performance. I'm now determined to include anyone within my practice, regardless of who they are or where they live.

Since becoming freelance, I have found myself specialising in four disciplines:

Working with new writers.

Working with communities.

Making site-specific theatre.

Making theatre with/for young people.
