My practice as a performance maker is rooted in cultural identity, identity politics, research into African American identity and the concept of belonging. Through my training I have a physical approach deeply interlinked with text, theatricality, performance art, music, spoken word, aesthetics and socio-political issues. I identify as a queer brown woman and I work mainly in collaboration with a disabled dancer Laura Fisher, filmmaker Daniel Hughes and musician and composer Rory Comerford. My experience is rooted in a devising process as well as a facilitating and performance one. Currently I am focusing on movement and spoken word as a solo act, and filmmaking for music videos that enables me to combine all the creative mediums of my interests. I am interested in dance and movement, politics of the body and in developing my dance theatre practice further (which was the start of my performing training in Berlin at Tangente Company) so I would love to start to engage with The Work room not only because of my own practical interests however also because I had the pleasure of knowing some of your members ho have recommended this collective to me.
