I am a performance-maker, sound artist and theatre researcher based in Glasgow. I graduated from Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow in 2008 and completed a Masters by research on devised theatre in 2011.
Alongside this academic practice I have worked as a collaborator with Ankur productions and Cora Bissett, Magnetic North, the National Youth Theatre and Glas(s) Performance.
My own practice has seen me directing and performing in projects at a range of festivals and venues including Arches LIVE, IETM Glasgow, BAC, Forest Fringe, Hunt and Darton Cafe, Buzzcut Festival and Summerhall
Over the last 18 months I have been developing a suite of performances under the name The Death Jump Series, a project mapping and responding to a series of dangerous jumps from the 20th and 21st century.
During this time I have been developing my practice as a deviser/solo performer and have moved towards contemporary performance strategies of developing and composing work; combining movement and projection with performative text through a devising process. I approach work collaboratively and focus on developing material from a central question or thematic starting point and subsequently accumulating text, historical examples, gestures, video and music via association rather than clear narrative links.
I have also worked as a tutor on the Contemporary Performance Practice course at RCS and for Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow.
