PERFORMER + WRITER
Welcome to my website!


I am a Scottish / Belgian Actress, based between London and Brussels. (BA The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow, 2013-2016 + Le Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique, Paris, 2015)

I first began to perform as a singer in both Musical Theatre and Opera, and my passion for the musicality of text and Literature drew me to a classical training in theatre and film, where I furthered my love for devising ensemble work.

Since graduating, I have worked in a variety of fields within theatre, from teaching (Musical Theatre and LAMDA exams, since 2016), directing, writing and producing my own work (BOTTLED UP, Edinburgh Fringe, Camden Fringe, Eden Project Arts Festival 2018), as well as working as a production assistant for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (Made in Scotland Festival, Brussels June 2019), and returning to my roots in music to perform at La Monnaie Belgian Royal Opera House (PUSH, March 2019).

Thank you for visiting my website and please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have.

Bienvenue sur mon site web

 

Je suis comédienne, écossaise / belge, basée entre Londres et Bruxelles, (BA ConservatoireRroyal d’Ecosse, 2013-2016 + Le Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique, 2015).

 

J'ai d'abord commencé à jouer en tant que chanteuse de comédie musicale et à l'opéra, et ma passion pour la musicalité du texte et la littérature m'a amené à une formation classique en théâtre et en cinéma, où j'ai approfondi mon envie de création en compagnie/groupe.

 

Depuis la fin de mes études, j'ai travaillé dans divers domaines du théâtre, de l'enseignement (comédie musicale et examens LAMDA, depuis 2016), à la réalisation,  l'écriture et la production de mon propre travail (BOTTLED UP, Edinburgh Fringe, Camden Fringe, Eden Project Arts Festival 2018 ), ainsi qu'en tant qu'assistante de production pour le Festival Fringe d'Édimbourg (Made in Scotland Festival, Bruxelles juin 2019), et en retournant à mes racines dans la musique pour jouer à la Monnaie – Opéra royale belge (PUSH, mars 2019).

CURRENT PROJECTS

I am in the process of writing a multilingual collabration between actresses I trained with at both conservatoires (Scotland and France), in a project that focuses on female identity and language called The Seven Daughters / Les Sept Filles. Updates to follow.

MORE ABOUT MY WORK

My first play, BOTTLED UP, explores eco-anxiety, our dependency on plastics in day-to-day life and considers the irony of living in a world of plenty. I first performed BOTTLED UP in l'Usine Brussels, which I found out on the day of the performance was one of Belgium's first plastic-producing factories. After the first performance, I was commissioned to write a twenty-minute version of the piece to perform at the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), at a day of events and world-changing talks on single-use plastic. I then developed BOTTLED UP in Glasgow July 2018 in the National Theatre of Scotland's studios, Rockvilla, with a brilliant team of fellow RCS graduates, before its run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018 and Camden Fringe 2018. The show's last performance was at the Eden Project Arts festival in Cornwall. Take a look at the trailer for the performance and if you would like to know more about the creative process and how I came to write on such a subject please have a read of my Guest Blog for Creative Carbon Scotland


 

REVIEWS

"Bottled Up...skillfully structured one-woman play...powerful"

Sally Stott, The Scotsman ***

 

"Bottled Up is a hard-hitting drama...Cameron holds the audience's attention in totality. This is not an in-your-face political show. The focus is the environment, but the narrative is woven cleverly around the travesty that is Jeanie's present."

Udita Banerjee, Fringe Guru ****

 

"...a compelling human story that is instantly engaging and cleverly constructed...a pertinent topic and captivating story."

Debbie Gilpin, Mind the Blog *****
