I am a dancer, musician and somatic educator. My work is situated in the spaces in-between things, in the movements of transition and translation between different known worlds. I work to piece back together pathways that were forgotten, or forge new connections that want to be imagined, like the physicality of music, the rich sonic textures of speech, or ancient rituals initiated through new technology. I have devised and choreographed for ensembles, led improvisation scores for site-specific work, created spoken word and sound poetry performance, improvised music for theatre and dance productions, and designed and performed installation-based work.

I have shown my work at places including Tate Modern, The Place, Curve Theatre and Victoria & Albert Museum. I have collaborated with artists and companies across different disciplines, including ZU-UK (immersive intimate theatre), Corinne Jola (neuroscientific choreographer), Neil Paris (SMITH dancetheatre), Tim Murray-Browne (creative coder), The Next Room and Kandinsky Theatre.

I am a certified Pantarei Approach bodywork practitioner, teaching people to connect to their own strength and abilities, using a combination of empathetic touch and creative, constructive verbal communication. I use this to facilitate bespoke/individual work (Body Portals) and (Pantarei 1-1 Sessions) as well as group work (Bodywork into Dancing Labs) and (Artists Deepening Creative Process).

I also teach 1-1 sessions for piano and flute (click here for Creative Music Lessons), as well as creating bespoke workshops in movement training and performance making for specific projects.
