Join the Stove!

Are you a performer with a connection to migration or displacement? 

The Stove is a storytelling experience which takes place over dinner, inviting audience members to build community through sharing memories and creating stories together. The current narrative is a journey across Europe, through the eyes of a child refugee around a hundred years ago. He's my great-grandfather. 

In late January 2023, The Stove will be undergoing a mini residency at Arts Depot in North London.

For this residency, I'm looking to work with artists - actors, performers, storytellers, makers - who either have personal or familial experience of migration or displacement. We will be working together to develop a version of The Stove that allows for multiple stories and voices, and many more audience members. 

This is the first time I'm bringing other artists into The Stove's story, and I hope to do a fully-fledged (and better paid!) R&D later in 2023.

I'd love to work with you if you are (ideally):

- A performer, actor, devisor, or storyteller with some experience of immersive theatre

- Someone who has a connection to migration and displacement

- Someone who is comfortable performing and facilitating in English

- Someone who is comfortable talking about their/their family's experiences of coming to the UK, even if you don't always tell the full story

Minimum commitment: 2.5hour workshops on 23 and 27 January, timings tbc but definitely daytime

Additional commitment: Two performers will be invited to development days to work in more detail on particular narratives on 25/26 January. Let me know if you'd be interested in doing a development day!

Fee: £55 for each workshop; £100 for a development day

To apply: If you're interested, email me at with a little about yourself, why you would like to get involved in the project, and if you are interested in the development days as well as the workshops.
