Outside of DKHP I am currently co-director of Independent Dance, an artist development organisation in London. ID hosts a year round programme of research focused training, workshops, exchanges and talks with an international community of dance artists.www.independentdance.co.uk
Between 2013 - 2017 I co-directed an arts centre for international exchange in rural France called La Traversee, hosting residencies, workshops and monthly performance events - http://la-traversee.com
I performed as an independent dancer for fifteen years with a range of UK companies, touring extensively. These included Ricochet Dance productions Rosemary Lee Projects, Angela Woodhouse Yolande Snaith Theatredance, Russell Maliphant, and Diversions Dance Company.
My Teaching practice includes professional classes and workshops in improvisation, somatic movement and choreography. I have taught extensively on the BA and MA/MFA programmes at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire, London
I have also worked as a collaborator and movement director for visual artist’s projects internationally.
These include performing with Charlotte Darbyshire in Matthew Darbyshire's Oak Effect at Bloomberg Gallery; collaborations on differences and misunderstandings with choreographer Zoi Dimitriou, choreography for Matti Braun's The Alien (Germany, Holland, Ireland, UK); Daria Martin's, Wintergarden and Lonliness of the Modern Pentathlon, UK; collaborating with Polonca Lovsin, Slovenia/Wysing/Germany for Dynamo Door Dances; and performing in Jonathan Baldock's 2013 exhibition at Wysing Arts in Cambridge.
I recently completed a degree in psychology with Open University and am finding many connections to my performance practice.
