Alessandra Davison

Director London

(she/her)

I'm a theatre maker of Romani traveller heritage from Birmingham. I've been living in London for the past few years making theatre here and working as a director and facilitator at various venues. I'm an associate artist for the National Youth Theatre and work with Routes who run workshops for migrant women. I also run my own theatre photography business specialising in rehearsal and production shots (www.alessadavisonphotography.com).
I'm interested in work focused on heritage and human relationships, especially that which interrogates the way we react and respond to each other. I also love working on new writing and text focused projects.
