Initially working with the Donmar Warehouse as an Educational Practitioner in 2012, with Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female production of Julius Caesar, Alex engaged all-female school groups to explore ideas around the voice of women in the 21st Century. Devising around their responses to the production, they finished the residency with a performance on the Donmar stage.

She has run further Take the Stage devised residencies for Phyllida Lloyd’s Henry IV, school engagement workshops for Roots and Fathers & Sons, written study guides, and mentored young adults through Backstage Pass – a programme investigating the theatre industry and career options (all with the Donmar Warehouse).

She was part of the senior management team at The Space, singularly responsible for three-year community engagement project and all recruiting, programming, monitoring, budgeting and promotion (SpaceWorks).

She has returned to The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama as a Visiting Lecturer with Gamification & Devised Performance workshops for 1st year devised theatre students.

She designs and delivers workshops to help participants explore performance techniques, develop new work, discover other roles in theatre production, access ideas and relate to each other in new ways.

Alex coaches in personal development.
