Vanessa-Faye Stanley

Director London

I work as a director, movement director, dramaturg and actor to make theatre and film. I studied at Jacques Lecoq, and have a BA in English and a Masters in Shakespeare. I often create in collaboration with other artists, and sometimes with people who might not consider themselves as artists. English and French, with Creole roots, my work is founded on a passion for both new writing and classic texts, dynamic staging and turning the kernels of the imagination into great entertainment.

I would love to connect with other theatre makers.
