I work across performance, sound and sculpture to explore choreography of the body,
space and object. I create sensorial and immersive live and installation based works,
exploring forms of language and movement in relation to physical and psychological
experience. Drawing on themes of desire, water, synaesthesia, weight and
perceptual fields of imagination and memory.
