Resident Choreographer 2019

I am a dance artist, writer and maker based in Cardiff, and I originally trained at Northern School of Contemporary Dance. My work is rooted in a desire for connectivity and communication through movement, improvisation and performance. My choreographic practice focuses on connecting communities, feminist themes, the use of voice and spoken word, and challenging traditional theatrical hierarchies. My work has been shown in London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Brighton, Cairo (Egypt) and across Wales.
