An interview with Helen here, showing her development as a theatre maker. Thanks to Start Somewhere.
Helen Bovey is a Theatre Maker & Producer and the Co-Founder of Above Bounds Theatre Collective. She is based in Newton Abbot, UK.
I was always interested in pursuing Journalism growing up and hadn’t considered performance as a career, even though theatre had always been part of my learning at school. The summer before I chose my A Levels, I saw a production of Metamorphosis at the Theatre Royal in Plymouth. Something about this particular production inspired me; the performers, set and staging was so inspiring to me that I phoned up Exeter College and changed my choice from Photography to Drama. Since then, I haven’t looked back, and I attend as much theatre as I possibly can. I particularly enjoy companies with a physical approach to devising, such as Kneehigh, the Wardrobe Ensemble and Rhum and Clay.
