Co-Directors | Bell Shakespeare's Macbeth.

“Working with Maria on Macbeth was an incredible experience. As fight director Maria was an energetic collaborator who brought a fresh and contemporary aesthetic to our combat scenes. In her role as one of the Witches she was able to work from within, driving the development of a unique physical language for the show. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a creative leader or collaborator.”
