SIREN is my most recent performance project, developed in collaboration with musician Barry Han and artistic director Elinor Randle.
The show is a dark musical comedy exploring the mythology of the mermaid and the silencing of women.

My work as a performer always has a root in mythology and other worldy 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 destroy and distort gender stereotypes using costume, dance, sound art, clowning and cabaret.
