“For me, the creative process is a kind of addictive and ecstatic agony. It’s an on going dialogue with performers, dancers, space, light and sound. My fascination with non-theatrical spaces informs my design and choreographic processes.”

In creation I work with extended movement improvisations where I use music to manipulate and direct the atmosphere. I spend hours creating playlists of music to use to provoke drama, dancing and a kind of theatrical chaos. I’m like a deejay playing the crowd.

I love creating from chaos although I think this offers a particular set of challenges to the performers when trying to discover both a physical and psychological logic. I need and trust them to make sense of things.

The studio becomes a partner and I think about it always as a kind of architectural site. I’m inspired by the dancers instincts and responses in the given moment and I am constantly investigating ways in which the dancing connects to narrative and intention. I try and work from an emotional place.

Dance and theatre for me is all about expression and observation. It’s how I have managed to navigate my way through this world as a human being.

My drive is to create cinematic, physically driven work which interrogates and expresses the complexities of the human condition.
