ABOUT ME

Hey I’m Liz. Mother to a 3 year old daughter called Lyra and passionate about theatre and the performing arts.I don’t believe that theatre has to be contained within a building, it should be something to discover, explore and experience with all your senses. I have lived in 6 countries and traveled to 92. I enjoy throwing on a backpack and heading off to see remote and unusual destinations. I love books and literature – I named my daughter after Philip Pullman’s ‘The Northern Lights’.

WHERE IS HOME?

London is home – but Dubai has also been home now for the last 8 years.

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER? 

I wanted to be a ballerina. I also wanted to be cabin crew as I thought their job was to dance in the aisles and play castanets.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am an Artistic Director of Immersive Events and Experiences.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ACTIVITY TO DO WITH YOUR CHILDREN?

We enjoy reading together.

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR WEEKENDS?

Right now rehearsing for my online show takes up a lot of time, but Fridays are family days when we do crafting, cooking and swimming together.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE?

Cold Comfort Farm. No one else has ever heard of this.

IF YOU COULD EAT ONE MEAL FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Sashimi.

WHO’S YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?

Honestly I’ve never had one. Is it too weird to say Judi Dench and Ian Mackellan?

WHICH DESTINATION IS ON YOUR BUCKET LIST TO VISIT?

I quite fancy Turkmenistan next.

WHAT’S YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?

Green tea ice-cream.

IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

I’d like to have a time turner like Hermoine so I could visit, and potentially alter, the past and the future.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT LIVING IN DUBAI?

It’s safe with lots of activities for children.
