Emotional extremes, tragic predispositions and a yearning for ensemble movement are key drivers for Holland Williams' work. 

Drawing from the imaginative prose of 20th Century philosophers such as Canetti and Calvino and with a background in Commedia dell’Arte she interrogates the volcanic theatrical encounters bubbling away under the skin of social interaction.

An opera activist and patron saint of all things designed to get audiences out of the auditorium.
