Wabriya King: Associate Dramatherapist

“What actors have to take themselves through both physically and emotionally takes its toll. My role is to work alongside them and acknowledge and nourish their mental wellbeing in relation to the work, enabling them to safely honour their character’s journey, without giving or losing too much of themselves in the process.” – Wabriya King

We are delighted that Wabriya King has joined our team as the Associate Dramatherapist.

As theatre often deals with traumatic themes and incidents, Wabriya’s practice is to create a space and a format to hold people safely while they navigate their experiences in relation to the theatre’s work.

Wabriya has previously worked as a dramatherapist on The High Table at the Bush Theatre, for shows at Soho Theatre,  Stratford East, and is currently working with Hampstead Theatre, The Royal Court, and Paines Plough.

When appointing Wabriya, our Associate Artistic Director Daniel Bailey said: “We take our duty of care to our Bush family very seriously. When we’re programming work that asks cast and creatives to expose themselves to stories and situations which reach into the heart of their soul, it’s vital that we offer the most supportive environment we can. Wabriya has such an amazing track record of work in this field and we at the Bush are excited to have this opportunity to work with, and learn from her”.
