Sam is a director, movement director and dramaturg. He is committed to creating accessible and diverse work that uses physicality to inspire the imagination.

His directing credits include an acrobatic staging of Serse for Opera Holland Park (‘fantastically detailed’, The Guardian); Man of One Hundred Faces - exploring espionage in Revolutionary Russia - listed in The Guardian's “Readers’ Favourite Stage Shows of 2022” (Edinburgh Fringe/King’s Head Theatre); and co-directing The Man Who Thought He Knew Too Much (Edinburgh Fringe/UK and international tour) - described as ‘physical theatre at its most immaculate’ (The Scotsman), nominated for an Offie and Everything Theatre Award.

Sam is a co-Artistic Director of the multi-award-winning international physical theatre company Voloz Collective and a co-founder of Unleash the Llama, a company that concocts historically-informed socio-political comedies. He also directs for the New Renaissance Collective, staging highly-physical adaptations of early opera and theatre.

His movement direction credits for comedy include Jack Whitehall: At Large (Hammersmith Apollo/UK Tour/NETFLIX); Leo Reich: Literally Who Cares?! (Soho Theatre/Pleasance Courtyard) - listed as The Guardian’s “Best Comedy Show of 2022”; SHEEPS: Live and Loud (Soho Theatre/Pleasance Courtyard) - where The Guardian described the show’s ‘razzle-dazzle song-and-dance opener’ as ‘intensely funny’; and Jordan Brookes: BLEED (Soho Theatre/Pleasance Courtyard), called ‘a fearless display of physicality that shape shifts from ludicrous tomfoolery to raw menace.’ (The List)

Sam regularly associate directs for Helen Eastman and Olivier-nominee Bronagh Lagan. His credits as Associate Director include Broken Wings (Theatre Royal Haymarket/Dubai Opera/Katara Opera); Umm Kulthum and the Golden Era (London Palladium/Dubai Opera) and The Adventures of Pinocchio (Ambassador’s Theatre).
