Video documentation of current work: layered screen recording.

My interdisciplinary research is practice-based, sitting at the intersection of dance and political economy. It feels, moves, and thinks through concepts like value, productivity, degrowth and the commons. I am also interested in play as a research ontology and methodology, and how practice and performance intertwine. I am particularly interested in how dance knowledge might impact other fields, and in participatory performance’s potentials for change. With full funding from TECHNE, I am working on a practice-based PhD at Kingston University and am a core member of the AHRC funded Dancing Otherwise network (UK) as well as a member of the Race/Gender Matters research group at Kingston University.

​Friendship and collaboration form the seed of many of my projects.
