Jonathan is a Director, Producer and Lecturer who has presented theatre events all over the world. He is an associate lecturer at several universities across the UK and supports many emerging theatre-makers in strategies for creating new performance work. Jonathan specialises in training actors for the somatic/psychological challenges that performance brings. He trained at Manchester Metropolitan University School of Theatre and since then has trained extensively in event management, humanist teaching practices and supporting artists with additional needs.

Jonathan’s theatre is diverse in its style and presentation. His early career centred on site-specific/interactive theatre and his work has evolved to directing large-scale productions by Shakespeare, Opera and small autobiographical solo shows. Since 2007 Jonathan has toured shows to all four corners of the outdoor arts sector with Plunge Boom and has spent the last two years working for Arts Council England in Grant Management and as a Relationship Manager in Combined Arts.
