Hello! As the shrewd amongst you may have ascertained, I’m Shivaike and this website is just a collection of my work, paired with my general ramblings about Arts and diversity.

I graduated in English Literature from University College, Oxford in June 2019. In my time there, I was involved with 25 plays, and three films. I worked primarily as a producer, costumiere, and makeup artist.

I am now the co-founder and director of Khameleon Productions, an all diverse production company focused on platforming the stories and talents of creatives of colour. I have also worked in fashion, film and event production. Head over to the Portfolio page of my site to see a few of the things I’ve worked on in the past few years.

A bit of history… I started as a makeup artist back when I was 14, doing drag makeup for a friend. That led to shows at (rather questionable) small shacks in the back of Soho, and I slowly worked my way to bigger shows, and eventually, to working in theatres like Shakespeare’s Globe. I have worked as a costumiere, with companies like the RSC, learning to choose, sew, and upkeep gorgeous costumes for the stage and film.

Finally, I ended up as a producer, having produced numerous shows, most notably Medea, Oxford’s first all BAME production. I have also produced newly-written shows, and worked with more unique productions experimenting with movement to change the way theatre can come to life. I was also Vice President and Secretary of our college ball in 2018, which took over a year of hard (and often painful) work to bring together. Oh and yes, in admist all of this, I did the odd bit of academic work when time permitted…

So please enjoy the site, have a glance through my work, and join me in my ramblings. And hopefully I’ll convince you to ramble along with me!
