In 2016 Meg began to collaborate with director Isobel MacKinnon which has seen these women make waves in the NZ theatre community, this year securing the 2018 STAB commission alongside renowned NZ Play write Sam Brooks. This dynamic partnership has empowered both Meg and Isobel to continue to ensure strong female voices are present in theatre. As both of these artists continue to forge a path for other young women practitioners to find their way. Working with Duncan on his solo has meant that a feminist mindset has been central to the making of the work to ensure the representation of women is four-dimensional. Making sure Force Field is not just another show about a guy finding love, that the female voice and energy in the work is true and equal.
