I am a freelance artist and performer, who specialises in: Devising, movement and contemporary theatre. I graduated from Dartington College of Arts/Falmouth University in 2011, where I studied ‘Theatre with Choreographic Practices’.

I am interested in exploring unique ways of creating innovative performance for a varied audience, working largely with an emphasis on collaboration. I Have worked on numerous explorations into removing one’s senses as part of performance. I am also interested in the capabilities of movement and working without reliance upon vocal communication; the pinnacle of which involved undertaking a month’s silence alongside a collaborator and exploring the potential of creating and performing a piece of theatre, titled ‘A Silent Duet’, using physical communication alone.

I have co-founded several devising theatre companies including: Totally Irrelevant Theatre Company, with whom I toured the South West region with multiple devised workshops, performances and installations, as well as working alongside ARROW (Art: A Resource for Reconciliation Over the World), Barefoot and the Barbican Theatre, Plymouth. I also work with co-founded company, Ingo Theatre. Who’s devised piece ‘My Brother, My Sister‘ was nominated for the NEU\NOW Festival 2011 and was selected for the festival’s online showcase.

Furthermore, I have worked with multiple professional companies as a freelance performer. Including: Protein Dance, Hyperfusion and am currently working on a new performance with Bicycle Ballet.
