As part of Natalie’s relationship with the Traverse Theatre, she has been mentored by the poet, performer and playwright Sabrina Mahfouz. Natalie was also a member of the creative team for Scrapyard Manifesto in 2014. The Scrapyard Manifesto project, described as “a three-day political theatre adventure”, intended to give participants the freedom to play and experiment to create short pieces of theatre to challenge, provoke and stimulate debate, took place at the Roxy from Thursday 9 to Saturday 11 October 2014. Natalie was selected from over 50 applicants to take part in a day-long workshop with the Irish playwright Enda Walsh, delivered by Triskel Arts Centre, Cork, 2013.
