Aleasha was born in Birmingham England in the late 70s. At aged four she was paralysed by a virus and hospitalised for 18 months. Her mother consoled her by buying a fortnightly story book and tape series which thrilled, terrified and obsessed her around the clock. Those stories (many of which she can still tell you almost word for word) were the beginning of a passion that led her into the world of creative practice.
After studying theatre at Goldsmiths College in 97 she went on to form several fringe theatre groups, to travel and live in several countries and to study acting with Teatr Piesn Kozla (Song of the Goat Theatre Company).
As a theatre maker she is interested in communicating in non-rational ways and in the power of old stories to teach and transform.
Aleasha is the lead Artist on the Handless Project.
