Natalie Davies

Associate Artist

I am  dual-heritage (Bangladeshi and English) origin and proud to have been born and bred in Bradford. For the past six years I have been working as a freelance actor on both stage and screen.

It was in November 2014 that I made my initial connection with Freedom Studios on their Street Voices programme. The highlight of this project was performing at the Bradford Literature Festival in Nuzhat Ali’s When George came to Bradford. I am currently part of the development of  Freedom Studios upcoming production North Country.

The majority of my time has been spent developing FS youth theatre with Maria Spadafora and Jude Wright. Our partnership schools Grange Technology college and Carlton Bolling have had the opportunity to have access to over 18 months of workshops on a weekly basis. During this time we have created thought provoking theatre that has been featured at the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, International Women’s day and Refugee week. In my role as the workshop facilitator, I am also responsible in delivering drama sessions at The Arc youth centre with youths aged from 11-18. Please see my recent blog Canterbury Youthie for more details:
