What I do:
Producer | Performer | Collaborator | Artist
A little more about me:
I have lived in Wales for most of my life. I am deeply influenced and moved by the resonances within the ancient layers of the land around me. Resonances that I am seeking to explore and share with others in order to create new work.

My practice has been developed by theatre and live performance. I produced and directed Equilibre Horse Theatre for 15 years, a company known for its unique and diverse work. Horses were central, their mythic and symbolic presence permeating all the work.

I like to create performances and interventions that are visually led and I am interested in exploring the space that exists between theatre and the visual arts. My work is eclectic; I welcome the synchronicity generated within process, I embrace stitching together a patchwork of ideas to create responses that are textural, detailed and emotional.

Seeking to provoke a reconsideration of the landscape and our place within it, I try to offer a physical experience, drawing the audience in with subtle clues and detail, playing with attentiveness as a strategy for engagement, aiming to develop new and more binding connections between the audience and the world they live in.
Projects I’m working on:
Initially trialled for of the 4Oth Anniversary celebrations at the Centre for Alternative Technology in association with the CAT Oral History Archive Project. A sensory and contemplative exploration of the original Llwyngwern Quarry workings focusing on geology, architectural history and ecology. Currently pursuing options to expand this project into an immersive, site-specific theatre piece within the Quarry with a group of creative collaborators.

One of my ongoing projects is an investigation of abandoned of wells within the Dyfi Biosphere.

Water is one of the most important necessities, both for our physical health as well as for the well being of our imaginations. Ffynhonnell:Source is an ongoing exploration – reaching beyond the surface of ancient well sites and responding to their resonances. This ongoing work has generated a number of projects:

Gwrando ar y Dwr/ Listening to Water performance at Aberystwyth Arts Centre

Gwrando ar y Dwr /Listening to Water at the Greeen Man Festival

Installation of Ffynhonnell /Source at TIONAL conference, Isle of Skye
