I worked as an independent choreographer between 2001 and 2014 where my dance practice was informed by my paintings, a background in music and my work with elderly people. I created pieces for opera productions, musicals and for dance on film projects. I have been involved with Candoco’s youth groups [run by Candoco Dance Company for disabled and non-disabled dancers] and choreography residencies/projects with Donald Hutera (The Place for “Choreodrome,” GOLive Dance Festival). In November 2010 I curated and co-produced at Rich Mix (London) an evening on the theme of the “feminine body,” inviting Preface Morn and Kamala Devam to perform work alongside mine that explored different aspects of the female body in dance.
I trained in Ballet in Geneva (Switzerland) with Helen Roux and The Ballet Junior. I went on to study contemporary dance in the USA with Jeanne Ruddy (Martha Graham), The Merce Cunningham Studio, Lisa Kraus (Trisha Brown) and the faculty at Swarthmore College. I have taken part in masterclasses with Akram Khan, Russell Maliphant, Mark Morris, Doug Varone and Shen Wei among others.
