Performance Maker, Practitioner and Researcher
Since I began working professionally in 2008 I have been interested in the audience as participant to the event. When working in particular places I want to know how the local engages with their space, how that space is perceived and what stories emerge from memory.
This process of working has also been embedded into my educational work, putting schoolchildren at the centre of the project and working with them to generate material that is valuable and exciting, and as a freelance artist I specialise in creating work for children. As a freelance artist I am always looking for projects that are driven by community involvement and are playful in their remit.
My PhD work focused on archives and oral histories and I investigated how they can shape the dramaturgy and the shape of the performance.
