"One of the most generously trusting directors I have ever had the chance to work with and if any opportunity would arise to work under his creative leadership again, I would jump at the chance! Not only a director, but a creative visionary, a collaborative leader and all round beautiful soul. He dreams grandly for the stage, but plays the whole truth of the words on the page."
(Choreographer & Movement Director)
"Robin is this person who motivates the best out of you. he makes a room full of love and brings everyone around you closer. His work during my time in the RSC's Next Generation company will never be forgotten.
I wouldn't be ready for the industry and wouldn't believe in myself as much as I do If I hadn't had him by my side."
