Outside Ricochet

Ella is a neurodiverse queer theatre maker from South East London with a particular interest in staging the unstageable and centering mental wellbeing in her creative practice. As a theatre maker she switches between directing, acting, facilitating and sound design but her main focus at the moment is directing having just completed an MA in Theatre Directing at East 15 Acting School. Her directing style is forensic but playful; inquisitive but assured.

Most recently Ella was Assistant Director on Tony! (The Tony Blair Rock Opera), written by Harry Hill and directed by Peter Rowe at the Park Theatre and directed Freaks by Polly Waldron at The White Bear Theatre in London. She has also recently completed a foundation in Puppetry at the Little Angel Theatre.
