I have performed as Dance Artist, Improviser, Theatre Artist and Poet. I enjoy devised and collaborative interdisciplinary practices with Artists of all different skill levels.

Recent performance work has included a sculptural piece that involved a site specific improvisation development process, culminating in video, photographic and installation piece with Perth Impro Practice for Gomboc Gallery’s 2012 Sculptural Survey.

This work was developed into a theatre performance for Summer Nights Program at the Blue Room for Fringeworld Festival in WA in 2013

A Journey of Hope

An example of a collaborative project involving a theatre, design, photography, sound and video, is A Journey Of Hope.  The project  involved young emerging artists and was commissioned for Refugee Week 2012

The final product was five fabric banners of two meters in length, depicting the journey of a refugee. Accompanying the banners was a video story spoken in 4 different languages.

A Journey of Hope was exhibited in the WA Department for Communities Refugee Week Art Exhibition.

This 4 night residential teaching intensive was a collaborative project of the Perth Contact Improvisation Community.
