i am a dancer and my career has different strands - i perform, teach, create, collaborate and express myself in other non~career~specific ways. I am drawn to finding the layers beneath, the dirt under the surface of things. I think this is big trans energy. i'm nesting in newcastle after ten years of being based in london. if you want to see a list of my work check out my cv, if you want to hear more about me, keep going...
I LIKE TO CREATE AND PERFORM IN LIVE DANCE WORKS ~ THE STAGE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FIST LOVE. I ENJOY exploring the edges ~ pushing myself physically whilst also WORKING WITH subtlety and RECOGNISING THE 'BOTH~AND' OF THINGS.
DANCING IS SOMETHING THAT HAS ALWAYS BROUGHT ME BACK TO MY BODY, to a sense OF HOME, WHICH IS REASSURING AS I DON'T HAVE one GEOGRAPHICAL PLACE I CALL HOME ~ once i lived in my van and just flopped sideways into nature ~ it taught me stuff.
i am a queer jew deep thinker and dog parent who loves spending a lot of time in nature and opening up to people who don't really know me. i have a sense of plural selves and i like resisting stereotypes. i'm aware and alert and always thinking about how i want to take up digital space. these platforms are my own but what if they own me?
i'm an open book, an orchid kind of flower ~ don't bloom just anywhere, if the environment ain't right i shrivel which is deflating...
I am sometimes fiercely firm, there's fire in there and i have a strong sense of 'fuck snobs' ; i am metropolitan and provincial
I like reading, find information beautiful but get bored of black letters against off white pages.
i feel scared to take up space sometimes and there are many invisible barriers that prevent me from doing more things. not always shy, not reliably self-confident either.
I hate working totally alone and love to be in relation to others
