I am an independent dance artist/choreographer with a background in art and a wide range of dance styles. Since 1994 I have specialised in Butoh performing in UK and Asia. Work includes theatre, site-specific, cross art collaboration and dance film. I have performed in a diverse range of venues besides theatres from churches, pubs, studios, streets to gardens and art galleries. My films have been screened as part of Dancin Oxford and in Oxdocs International film festivals at Playhouse, Old firestation, Phoenix, Penultimate Picture Palace, castle walls.
I regularly teach and choreograph with Café Reason Butoh dance theatre (www.cafereason.com).
I have also taught for Anjali open classes for learning disabled adults and children, choreographing pieces for galas at The Mill Banbury and Headington Theatre; and for the charity Crisis teaching dance to homeless and vulnerably housed people. I am currently offering classes for dance/movement for older people.
I am committed to creating opportunities for dance and am an active member of The Oxford Dance Forum. I have set up regular sessions for cross art collaboration, choreographic development and organised informal platforms for works in progress by café reason and other dancers and artists.
