I have a PhD in Drama and Theatre Studies. Academic research has been a part of my practice, and the way I think about it. I officially became a doctor in 2015, with a thesis titled “Moving Intimacies: A Comparative Study of ‘Physical Theatres’ in France and the UK”. This research and the years I spent in higher education in the UK have shaped the way I understand performance. Along with my work as part of Little Bulb Theatre has given me the tools and confidence to develop my own voice as an artist.
I have been a Visiting Lecturer at Royal Holloway, University of London (intermittently between 2011 and 2013), teaching Performance Studies and
Experiments in 20th and 21st Century Dance. I am currently a Visiting Lecturer at London South Bank University, teaching a combination of practical and theory-based courses including Experimental Performance, Multimedia Theatre and Practices of Adaptation.
I have recently been part of a residency at Battersea Arts Centre, in the Bee’s Knees, their space for 0-3 year olds. I have been experimenting and thinking about ways to make work for that age group and their primary carers, starting from a relational perspective.
