I am a Performance Artist devising and performing live and experimental

My work focuses in particular on autobiography and behaviour through
Physical Theatre and Live Art approaches. Inspired by artists such as Pina
Bausch, I have devised and performed in traditional and contemporary work,
as well as run a Theatre Company through which I lead workshops and
seminars in schools, colleges and the community. I train in the Brazilian
martial art of Capoeira and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as well as Contemporary
Dance, and have attended workshops with artists such as Steven Berkoff and
Third Angel. Driven and always striving to create something new, my
performances are hard work but always playful.

Performance (’04-’08):

moment. How much is truth, and how much should we choose to accept?
