Helena is one half of Write the River alongside Amberlilly Ewbank.

Write the River is an award-winning performance duo blurring the lines between disciplines including theatre, drag, magic, and fine art. They seek to reconnect audiences with their childhood curiosity and to make work in unconventional ways for unconventional spaces. They explore the stories of unconventional people who don’t fit the usual narrative. Write the River is passionate about women, water, bodies, and storytelling.
