Rhiannon creates performance from a female perspective and often rooted in personal experiences. She has worked with intergenerational and community casts and had work performed at Sadler’s Wells Lilian Baylis Theatre, The Place, The Southbank Centre's Clore Ballroom, Queen Elizabeth Hall and is currently a Free Space artist at Studio Wayne McGregor. She is passionate about teaching and working with those without a background in performance so that the diversity of life is reflected by what we see on stage.
In 2015, following the birth of her son, she began making a dance theatre piece Baby about the birth of her son, which got a 5 star review at The Cockpit for Camden Fringe Festival in 2017 and performed in many venues (and high streets!) in London. The cast featured parents & babies dancing together and was followed by a baby/toddler disco led by the show's characters. Motherhood continues to be a topic of interest to Rhiannon and she hopes to continue to develop more work on this theme in the future.
She is currently developing her writing and performing. Playing the part of Trump in Mr President and developing its script at Camden People's Theatre's Sprint 2018, followed by a further performance at Battersea Arts Centre, renewed her passion for writing and performing. Rhiannon began writing the autobiographical show The Promised Land in 2018 when she was commissioned for Dare Festival by Upstart Theatre. The Promised Land was subsequently programmed by Camden People's Theatre and The Warren Theatre Box for Brighton Fringe in 2019, where it received its first review - it was a 4 star review. The show will now be developed further for performances in 2020.
Rhiannon has been accepted into a writing group at The Royal Court Theatre in January 2020 as she continues to develop her writing.
