My performance work is often inspired by mythology, nature and the environment, archetypes and other worldly creatures. I love to create surreal characters that comment on the absurdity of our human condition especially ideas around women and femininity. I like to draw from my own personal experiences as well as dreams, folk stories, activism and politics.
Comedy and humour is a huge part of my work and I like to destroy and distort gender stereotypes using costume, video, dance, music, sound art, clowning and cabaret.
Images below are taken from my indoor theatre and cabaret practice.
Shows include: Paperwork, Cosmic Trigger, The Picture Box, Siren, Caustic Capers, Vogue Ball, The Surgeons, Kronos, Space Cassette
