I am a London-based artist, researcher and educator, working with performance, video, installation and hybrid modes of writing. I am interested in exploring ideas around memory, maintenance, enchantment and solidarity, as well as investigating ways to un-fix notions of time and place. Always open to new forms​ of experimentation, I am consistently inspired by lively discussions, new encounters, and unlikely assemblages.

As a practitioner-researcher, with a mixture of academic, artist and physical theatre training, I am a firm believer in breaking down the false binaries that separate practice and theory, making and thinking and writing about making. Long-term collaborators include artists Katja Hilevaara and Elinor Brass. 

At the moment, I work at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where I am Programme Leader on the MA in Collaborative Theatre Production and Design, supervise PhD students, and run postgraduate workshops on practice-as-research and creative-critical writing. I also teach performance writing with the European Cultural Centre Performance Art Platform

Imagination is what makes us absolutely free and, by extension, absolutely responsible.
