creative workshop facilitator
With a practice that intersects performance, installation, healing & participation, I create works in a multitude of forms & contexts. At once playful & rigorous, I’m interested in the possibility of change & in providing space to creative actions that can help release & restore.
I have over 15yrs experience devising & facilitating process-led projects with diverse communities across ages & backgrounds in challenging research, process & presentation. E.g. in my work THE FUTURE OF DEATH, 40 people (4-93yrs) bury each-other with earth following a residency in Palliative care & workshops with performer-participants on ‘letting go’ https://vimeo.com/6107950
My work has been commissioned & presented at leading national & international venues including: Whitechapel Gallery, Royal Opera House, ICA, LIFT, The Place, Tate Modern, Lillian Bayliss (London), as well as in Spain, Italy, Israel, France, Germany, Slovenia, S.Africa & Austria.
I have been visiting lecturer at University of the Arts (costume/design), mentor at Royal Central School of Speech & Drama (performance), workshop facilitator at Kingston & Coventry University (Architecture/Dance) & Drama Therapist at Saint Stephens School (Rome). In April 2020 I devised & facilitated online creative workshops for clients at Coventry Refugee & Migrant Centre in partnership with Dancing Bodies in Coventry City.
