About Amber Fox-Martin

Amber Fox-Martin is a historian, researcher and stage manager. Amber studied at Stellenbosch University, where she graduated cum laude in 2018 with a Bachelor of Arts in drama. She majored in stage management and theatre studies, as well as history, which she studied with intention of developing research in the field. She furthered her studies the following year by completing her honour's in history. Under the mentorship of Professor Vivian Bickford-Smith, Amber created her thesis documentary film, A Feast in Time of Plague, which earned a cum laude grading and is set to have its world premiere at the 22nd Encounters South African International Documentary Film Festival in August 2020. Apart from her own studies, Amber currently holds an ad-hoc lecturing post at the Stellenbosch University Drama Department, where she teaches sound and stage management. Due to COVID-19 and the university's switch to online teaching, Amber has subsequently developed various digital resources and tutorials for her students. Her teaching is largely based on her experience as a stage manager. Since 2017, she has worked as a freelancer in the entertainment industry in the capacity of venue technician, sound operator, venue manager, production manager, assistant stage manager and stage manager for various productions. Most notably, Amber has recently worked with the likes of Marthinus Basson and Janice Honeyman. In 2019, she was employed by the Adam Small Theatre Complex to work as a stage manager and administrative assistant. She has launched social media platforms for the new theatre and has documented many of the live events hosted there. Amber’s focus for 2020 has been on research and teaching. Aside from joining the South African History Online team where she has since co-ordinated one of their main projects, Amber is also working on her master’s degree. Amber is precision-driven and strives to achieve the very best when she works on a project. Her strengths in project management have attributed to the success of the productions that she has worked on.
