William is a proud queer and neurodivergent director, choreographer and movement director who trained at Bird College whilst being a Student Ambassador to the McOnie Company. Recently, he has joined the Young Vic’s Fresh Direction Cohort and has worked with creatives such as Adam Penford, Bronagh Lagan and Nick Winston. He has been four time Offie nominated for his work on [Title of Show], his narrative ballet Coppelia, Tinderella and the critically acclaimed Grindr the Opera which he also directed.


Working in both movement/choreography and direction over various roles his credits include;


Nul Points! (Union Theatre), A-Typical Rainbow (Turbine Theatre), My Sister is Missing (The Other Palace and The King’s Head), Pippin, Next Thing You Know (Garden Theatre), Romance Romance (Above The Stag) (Un)Fit To Work (Channel 4) and LOL Surprise Celebrate the Crew (Sony Music).


William aims to use dance and theatre as an increasingly accessible art form and to revive its historic position at the forefront of storytelling. Having worked internationally as a performer he wishes to continue this as a creative, bringing quality theatre to everyone through the inclusive means of non verbal communication. He wishes to unite audiences through relatable content and champion the theatre as a universally moving and enjoyable experience. His ambition is to collaborate further with students, artists and creatives within London’s conservatoires, its fringe venues and its prestigious West End.
