With a research background in Human Geography, my movement practice is motivated by the co-generative relation between moving bodies and social space.
I studied Human Geography at the University of Glasgow and the University of Iceland, a discipline fundamentally concerned with people, space and place. My research focused on emotional geographies, the geographies of the body, gender and movement. My thesis was entitled "The Perambulatory Geographies of Icelandic Womxn in Reykjavik”.
This research project prompted many other questions for me relating to bodily agency and resistance. Dance practice has provided a means for me to begin to engage with some of these questions.
I have since studied for one year at The Scottish School for Contemporary Dance, and at SMASH Berlin, a two month intensive training in experimental physical performance. My practice is motivated by a belief in the capacity of all moving bodies to radically affect their own surroundings and experience. I am interested in working with others to form projects that work with this notion in varying contexts.
