Heather Marshall Director
'I create work based on the real and often subverted by the surreal. I'm predominantly interested in creating contemporary performance inspired by real people and their stories. To me theres nothing more interesting than life. I work primarily in devised theatre but like to collaborate with choreographers to include a more physical element to my work.
At the moment I'm enjoying playing around with interactive theatre. To me an audience really shapes a performance with their reactions so this has become a focus in my work. Whether its inviting the audience to actively participate or whether they become unintentional performers.'
Heather trained at Queen Margaret University in Drama & Theatre Arts specialising in Community Theatre.
