Susan Worsfold is a theatre director specialising in the Nadine George Voice Work for which she is one of only 14 accredited teachers worldwide.

She is Director of The Attic Collective, a new ensemble theatre company resident at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre and Kings Theatre, Edinburgh, supported by the Festival City Theatres Trust and working with emerging artists aged 18-26.

Susan is co-company director of Queen Jesus Plays, working with Jo Clifford and producer Annabel Cooper to direct the internationally acclaimed The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven, which toured to Brazil in 2016 with support from British Council. In February 2017, they co-produced the symposium Beyond The Binary with The National Theatre of Scotland, discussing trans artists in the digital world and live stream linking to their Brazilian sister company. They bring a world, not a play, connecting to national artists to develop local productions of Queen Jesus as well as it’s original English performance. Both a portuguese and spanish production are currently being produced.

She is the inaugural Creative Development Director of the Nadine George Voice Centre of Voice Studio International, working consistently with Nadine since 1994. Having previously supported the development of the company including the annual workshop programme, development of the teaching accreditation course and the work in the arts and health sector, Susan will now help the Centre to expand it’s operations and bring the work to new audiences.

She works across genre and sectors - with actors, dancers, choreographers, musicians, visual artists, executives, chief police officers and diplomats. She has researched the links between voice and vision leading to the delivery of ‘Voicing Our Vision’ at the World Holistic Vision Conference in Belgium and was invited as Lead Facilitator at the Embodied Persons conference (Department of Nursing, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh) where she received a special speaker invitation to their TedX event on Flourishing. She works with mixed ability theatre company Lung Ha embedding NGVW as a company practice. Susan has worked with the transgender community in Scotland through the LGBT Health Centre, where she has developed ‘Finding Our Voice’ workshops with both the senior and youth trans community. She has recently designed and delivered voice workshops for sign language interpreters in Scotland.

Susan is Associate Teacher to the Centre for Voice at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, from which she graduated with a BA Hons in Directing in 1998.

In 2017 she will direct Lysistrata (Kings Theatre), War in America (Old Royal High School, Jo Clifford World Premiere), Threepenny Opera (Kings Theatre) all for The Attic Collective, The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven (UK Tour), Heroine by Mary Wells (Edinburgh Festival Theatre), Eve by Jo Clifford & Chris Goode (NTS at Traverse and Citizens Theatre), The Last Post (St Magnus International Festival commission and Made in Scotland 2017 award winner) and Cleopatra with Madame Teatro for SESC Palladium, BH, Brazil.

Susan directs theatre and teaches voice workshops across the UK, France and Brazil.
