Dr. Amy Mallett is a composer and theatre-maker creating work inspired by contemporary and historical stories. She enjoys interdisciplinary approaches, and collaborating with practitioners from other art forms to create inclusive and multidimensional works. In 2018 she was awarded a PhD from Bath Spa University, and her notable music theatre works include Witchfinder, Paperwork and HerStory.
After spending many years within FE/HE education, Amy now enjoys a varied cross-sector career within creative health, having worked for organisations including Clod Ensemble's Performing Medicine, Britten Pears Arts, English National Ballet, Singing for Health Network and the NHS. As creative and cultural consultant and seasoned workshop facilitator, she is equally at home presenting to an international conference audience as she is delivering participatory projects to community groups.
In 2021, she founded Cohere Arts, a CIC providing opportunities for communities marginalised through health challenge or disability to engage with arts and heritage.

'"A fantastic example of community theatre at its absolute best - exciting, entertaining, inclusive and gutsy." review of Witchfinder at Walpole Old Chapel, May 2022
"A fabulous facilitator who enables discussion, collaboration and learning." - Workshop participant, Social Prescribing of Arts & Culture training
"Clever, original songs which are both witty and poignant at the same time..." - Audience member, Paperwork! The Musical
"Amy is brilliant at using the words, phrases, feelings, emotions we want to convey in a dance production and creates sound scores which compliment the work beautifully. Each work I’ve created sits side by side with the music, rather than just sat in the background."
- Artistic Director, Karen Louise Dance Company
