Vital Spark's Creative Director...

I'm Katherine Jackson (AKA Watson) and I founded Vital Spark Theatre in 2005. I was a performer and teacher for many years and still do both occasionally. I have a BA(hons) degree in Performing Arts, am an associate level qualified teacher with the Imperial Society of teachers of Dance and I have a Gold medal in acting from The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. I gained a distinction in my MA in practice based play therapy and my research area is the therapeutic use of den play. I love being outdoors, playing and telling stories. Vital Spark continues to evolve but at the heart of the company, imagination and creativity remain constant.
