Making work with Candoco

I'm chuffed to be working with two Candoco Dance Company performers, Kathleen Hawkins and Anne-Gaëlle Thiriot, to create a duet for the reopening of Kettle's Yard in Cambridge. We will show the work on Saturday 17 March. One in a series of live interventions that day, we will move in the new and old spaces of the gallery, among/alongside the works brought together for ACTIONS, the image of the world can be different. 

Honoured and excited to be making in such great company.

REVIEW - In This Moment at Cardiff Dance Festival

'... resonates with a sense of presence and immediacy, of being in the here and now and experiencing something sublime but also connected to history, the past and how we can rethink our relationship to the world.' - Alex Wren, Buzz Magazine

We Are Constellations

I was joined this October by a wonderful group of artists: Natalie Corne, Laura Dannequin, Helka Kaski, Zoe Manders, Camille Marchadour and Tilly Webber. Together we begun on a performance research process. My invitation to them was to meet, to meet and to pay attention to the questions and opportunities that arose out of the specificity of this/these encounter/s. 

I approached it thinking that it will be okay to delve into the unknown. In fact I sort of see it as my my job to do so.

I approached it with a keen sense that we never start from a blank page. Even when we wish to. 

I approached it with trepidation.

I approached with fear. It’s always a part of it. 

I approached it with Solnit under my arm and Ezra Furman in my walkman (so to speak).

I approached it pondering how it all fits into our broken world.
