Alice Eklund

Shwmae! I’m Alice, a bilingual Welsh Director, Dramaturg and Creative Practitioner. I founded BolSHE in February 2020 to celebrate and platform Welsh and Wales based women. I’ve consistently been surrounded by amazingly talented creative women as part of my work, and I wanted to share their stories with you, whilst finding more every day!

My focus for the work I make is bilingualism, championing the unheard stories of women, for women and if I can chuck musical theatre into it.. I’M THERE!

BolSHE to me is a chance to share the love and the space with incredible people who shaped me and our other members of the community/industry. As a queer, disabled woman I’m so aware of the lack of platform for the women who paved the way for us, and I’m also very aware of my own privileges as well. So, if you ever want to chat about how we can make BolSHE even more inclusive, we’re always learning and WANT to!

You’ll find me most likely drinking an oat flat white or a pint of cider somewhere, or mostly nowadays at the Sherman Theatre as their Literary Associate.
