I am a dance and theatre artist based in Newcastle, working on a variety of projects as a choreographer, performer, facilitator and movement director.
Part autobiographical, part observational, my work draws upon shared, and – at times – mundane daily experiences to create sensitive, humorous and thought-provoking dance theatre work.
My practice is informed by my background in dance and theatre, underpinned by my training in musical theatre - and is inspired by the interdisciplinary collaborators that I work with, including dramaturg Rosa Postlethwaite, theatre maker Luca Rutherford and illustrator Erin McGrath.
Most recently, I have worked as a movement director on Preconceived by Jonluke McKie and Luca Rutherford’s Political Party by Luca Rutherford.
I often incorporate participatory processes into my practice, within my own work as a choreographer and for other companies such as Cirque Bijou, Headway Arts, Jack Drum Arts and Dance City’s Centre for Advanced Training.
