Jelena’s a confident, able and imaginative workshop facilitator used to working with hard-to-reach groups, people with little experience of theatre, as well as professional actors.  She currently delivers drama sessions to people aged 5 to 95.  Inclusion is at the heart of her practice.



Jelena’s written, devised and directed many shows for a range of ages.  At Chickenshed these included large-cast musicals MGM (Making Great Movies) and Dazey Chain for the company’s children’s theatre, a number of plays for final year students (17+ year olds), and productions for the company’s adult theatre workshop.  She also co-wrote four of Chickenshed’s popular Christmas shows.
