About

 

I am a multi-disciplinary artist working mostly in live performance contexts. I’ve got an eclectic background in theatre and art practice, and I tend to follow whatever’s flirting with me most in the moment. I’m currently undertaking a doctoral research project investigating improvisatory performance practices as an ethical way to meet the queer/unruly dead – specifically Mary Frith.

I try to say yes to these as much as possible and see where I end up. This wilful dilettantism makes it hard to sum up exactly what I do, but curiosity and a meaningful conversation with the world underpin whatever I make. Recent work includes writing poetry, facilitating creative workshops, training as an Audio Describer, writing a monologue for Shakespeare’s Globe, co-running an online channel and group for Queer folks, drag performance, and producing Through the Door; improvisation workshops for women and non-binary people, run by Angela Clerkin at ClerkinWorks.

To the right of the shelter an uneven edge to the land and the prow of a small boat imply there is ocean beyond. The shelter has a doorway open in the left half of the visible wall.

On the expanse of concrete wall to the right of the doorway, crude chalk writing reads "you'll know what to do"

These will be mostly thinking about poetry writing but of course, you can use them however you like. The focus will be on taking inspiration from Queer and Feminist history, aiming to include and represent from … Continue reading Daily Writing Prompts
