I am a performer, lecturer and Feldenkrais practitioner living and working in London. I originally trained as an actor but these days I dance as well, so my performance practice has increasingly become interdisciplinary over the past decade or so. I work with the tool of instant composition, bringing voicing and moving together. In addition, I work with a small ‘stable’ of dance artists called anthologyofamess. I am a Senior Lecturer in Theatre Arts at Middlesex University, specialising in movement for actors. In 2020 I completed my PhD thesis entitled Material Words for Voicing Dancers (Royal Holloway University of London). The practice-led research looked into the use of voice in some dance improvisatory performance practices. I graduated from the London II training as a practitioner of the Feldenkrais Method® in August 2015.
