My colleague, and good friend, David Perry and I set up a theatre workshop (Aula de Teatro en Inglés) at UPV in the year 2000 aiming to help our students improve their spoken English and become more self-confident speaking in public through theatre techniques. The initiative proved to be extremely successfull and we've had a core group of students that year after year have joined us in the workshop, plus a number of new ones joining each year. The core group are now known as The Crow Theatre Group. Since the very beginning we've staged a theatre production each year, mainly written collaboratively by David and the Crows.

David and I have participated in two European-funded theatre projects:
- GLODISS (Dissemination of the Glottodrama language learning methodology)
- GLOTOI (Glottodrama Transfer of Innovation)
