Michael is an actor, mime-artist, physical performer, movement director, filmographer, photographer and artistic director of physical theatre company Project Lockout.
Since becoming a part of Frantic Assembly back in 2015 as part of Frantic Ignition, and now a graduate of East 15 Physical Theatre (2019), Michael has developed particular interest in theatrical cinematics. In combination with electric physicality, Michael endeavours to develop art through live and digital mediums.
Through Project Lockout, Michael began running workshops in 2017 focusing on celebrating movement and empowering individuals through free-writing; including two large workshop events named The Creation Day, which culminated into two half-hour films. He has also led workshops for Oxford University (2018) and headed Movement Direction at Theatre Royal Stratford East (2019) for their National Connections company.
Michael’s most recent directorial work, The Maniac Complex, headlined the Southend Fringe Festival 2019.
He has also lately finished touring On Edge with Justice In Motion, a parkour performance piece highlighting the issue of modern day slavery.
