Alice Eklund

Shwmae! I’m Alice, a bilingual Welsh director and emerging dramaturg. I founded BolSHE in February 2020 to celebrate and utilise 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!

I am a member of the Awenau directors program with Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru. Also a reader for this year’s Theatre Uncut Political Playwriting Award. My focus for the theatre I make is bilingual work, championing the unheard stories of women, for women.
