description

inspired by a range of forms and practices, the bulk of my work is rooted somewhere between dance and theatre. I am to inspire creativity through noticing, questioning, acting and reacting. I believe that dance and theatre really become whole when exploring what it means to be human. I often use games, tasks, scenarios and improvisations to access and enhance the way we communicate and understand each other. I try to bring the mundane, or the everyday gesture, into conversation with the dramatic and the abstract. I hope to bring a sense of child-like fascination, sensitivity and possibility to the world around us. Sessions are lead with a clear structure, but I am heavily inspired by the individuals that are sharing the space with me.
