About

Sam is a director and movement director.

His work has been described as ‘intensely funny’ (Brian Logan, The Guardian), ‘fantastically detailed’ (Erica Jeal, The Guardian), ‘fearless’ (the List), and ‘innovative’ (The Prickle).

He is committed to creating accessible and diverse work that marries stylistic innovation with popular appeal - using physicality to inspire the imagination.

Sam has developed intimate projects for site-specific and fringe settings, and has created work for large-scale venues and broadcast - including Netflix, the O2 Arena, Opera Holland Park and the Hammersmith Apollo.

Sam is Co-Artistic Director of international physical theatre company Voloz Collective (LET/Greenwich Award Winners 2020), whose work has been toured in the UK, Europe and off-Broadway.

He directs for the New Renaissance Collective, a company that stages highly-physical adaptations of classical texts and opera in site-specific locations.

As a movement director, Sam collaborates with comedians - including Jack Whitehall, Jordan Brookes, Liam Williams, Leo Reich and Adam Riches - to create movement for stand-up and theatrical comedies.

Sam has worked as an associate director to Bronagh Lagan on musical theatre productions in the West End and internationally - including Broken Wings (Theatre Royal Haymarket; Dubai Opera House; Katara Opera House), Umm Kulthum & the Golden Era (London Palladium) and The Adventures of Pinocchio (Ambassadors Theatre).

Sam has delivered workshops for the Royal Northern College of Music and Associated Studios. He teaches movement at Actors Door Studio.

He trained at l’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq and Cambridge University.
