Ways of Being Together
A choreography for many people
http://dance.wales/events/ways-of-being-together
The Cardiff Dance Festival event at Chapter was performed by 46 people who like to move. We are thinking about how this work might exist again and might travel. We will be recreating Way of Being Together for CAN Festival in London in 2020.

As an independent artist I present work that is thought-provoking and centred around people, dancers or players who translate, reveal or perform. The work is grounded in the idea of honesty in performance and looks under the skin: the psychological drives, motivations or inherent characteristics of an individual or group, creating a shared and considered relationship with an audience. The body is my first language, though text and voice work are regularly a part of the whole. I combine physical technical knowledge, agility and experience with a raw, rebellious and curious spirit. I endeavour to understand further and explore the scope for movement to communicate and to cultivate work that is generous, engaging and embodies an alternative beauty.

Cardiff
