This CV focuses on practice - please click on 'writing' to see my written publications and writing about my work. 

My practice works across screendance, digital practice, and sited dance performance and is exhibited in galleries and festivals. I focus on working directly with the public, finding ways to intensify and articulate people’s experiences in ways that can be understood by others. My work was nominated for the International Video Dance awards in Barcelona and selected as a flagship example of socially engaged practice for an AHRC-funded project curated by Creative Works, London. I work part-time as Course leader for MA Performance: Society at Central St Martins.
