Reviews and audience feedback for my play
Geneva Convention, which was premiered at Brighton Fringe Festival last May.

(Lucy Basaba, Theatre Fullstop)

Shame 01 lo
In June 2024, my video piece, Songs of the Chambermaids, (a sequence from my play, Civilization and its Discontents) was a Semi-Finalist at CLIMAX Festival Internacional de Cinema in Independiente in Madrid and a Nominee at Planet Cinema online festival, based in the United States. Previously, it's been a category winner at Brighton Rocks International Film Festival and Bestlov Film Festival.
