Research Interests

Contemporary dance and performance practice

Vision Statement

I come to academically framed research from my position as a practising artist and performer, and am interested in using the opportunity to question what might constitute research within dance practice, and how academic views might also encompass non-linear, unstable and wasteful aspects of artistic work.

As well as continued choreographic practice, I am currently researching cross-disciplinary advances in research on the relationship between action and perception, in relation to a re-evaluation of choreography as felt-sense rather than colonising structure.
