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.

I'm also interested in questioning what an expanded choreographic field might be: how the choreographic accumulates and transforms information; how a spectator processes this information; where the boundaries of the choreographic lie; what the immaterial elements or material traces of choreographic practice might be; and how collective, collaborative and other social aspects of the choreographic become a hidden politics at its heart.
