Ajjaz Awad-Ibrahim

Director London

I'm a Brixton born, mixed heritage theatre maker. Since studying at The BRIT School, ALRA and RADA, I have worked professionally within the industry for the last 10 years. I have particular experience in puppetry and devised work as a performer and new writing as a director. I would like to gain experience in immersive work and other alternative approaches to theatre making.
