  • Forest and Sea in my Body

    A week on from leaving the wildness – I walk through London, and the depth of forest is still inside my body, the open sands and the fresh sea are stretched through my bones, my fluids have an imprint of their rhythms, I navigate the city streets with its simple timing… I move through the…

  • Bedroom dancing

    I’ve been away in another country for a week.

    Belgrade, Serbia, attending a digital arts conference ‘Resonate’ and being inspired by the super warm and creative vibes of the artists, designers and new friends I’ve made there.

    Watching others

    I was in a bar the other day. It was the busiest bar on the street. One of the groups of drinkers broke out and two girls started dancing something like an Irish jig or the Riverdance. The sound drew me in, their energy. It was a good few seconds before I noticed I was even…

  • DRIFTing in Brazil

    July 2015 I travelled in Brazil, immersing myself into different environments, sounds, languages and ‘body spaces’… first working at a residency researching sound and movement installation in the mountains in Vera Cruz and sharing the work at the Gargarullo Theatre in the mountain town of Miguel Pereira, Rio. I then drifted around Bahia hiking in the stunning national park…

    This Floating World interactive dance piece was recently performed at VJ Live Performers Meeting in Rome, Italy.  It was a pleasure to build connections between my work with the world of the VJ and DJ…  Strengthening the relationships between dancing, music for dancing and moving visuals that light, inspire and emerge from the dancing body. Feeling super alert to the 3D colours and movements in our everyday urban environment,…

Like Jonathon Burrows says: ‘In the gap between what you agree with and what you disagree with, is a place where you might discover something new…’…

  • Phonebox Dance

    This is one of the dances I improvised out in the streets one sunny day last year… Now I look back on them, I can see just how much I respond to the sounds of the environment, like music. Also, it seems that the influence of people’s interactions and actions also, like music, has its…

  • Dance for Music, Music for Dance

    Recently I played live improvised music for a few dance improvisation events. A few questions arise and linger in the air… What’s needed of me?  I am needed?  Can dancers find their own music?  Why am I here, as a musician? Sometimes I think I am needed, sometimes I feel pretty independent, and free in…
