About me

I am a dance artist based in London. I choreograph, dance, deliver workshops, produce dance events, write and illustrate. I am also studying for an MRes in Choreography and Performance at the University of Roehampton.

I am particularly interested  in exploring how choreography, the body and performance can be ways to engage with Politics.

I have a strange background – I was a senior policy adviser in the UK civil service, and have studied martial arts, art and philosophy – but in some ways choreography is a natural continuation of all these things.

I have collaborated with Martine Painter and Gillie Kleiman and worked with artist Tino Seghal and choreographers Eva Recacha, Ivana Müller, Michael Kliën, Antonio de la Fe, Gille Kleiman and Alexandrina Hemsley.
