Regular updates on the latest performances in development, collaborations and news
I’m currently leading a third set of workshop sessions with Acting Now in Cambridge this summer (May-June 2019) - Physical Theatre Training - Intermediate Level.
My company Foxtale Ensemble are devising a new show, with a creative residency planned in August and performances in the autumn/winter of 2019 (more updates on this coming very soon!).
Together with Double Trouble Theatre, inspired by the creative process for Adventures in Black and White, I am launching a new digital performance project - Archive for the Displaced - a living repository of displacement stories that have travelled across borders and generations. Two events are being planned in June 2019 - more information coming soon!
Dr Carolina Vasilikou and I presented our ideas and methodologies of C.R.A.C.K.S. at “Hybrid Practices 2019” conference at the University of Malta in March 2019.
Funding dependant, Foxtale Ensemble will continue their collaboration with Rosemary Klich on Daphne in Three Movements, developing and touring the live performance in the summer/ autumn of 2019.
Adventures in Black and White
A show about the aftermath of displacement, exploring migration, belonging and relation to one's heritage, devised and performed by Double Trouble. The development of this work was supported by Starting Blocks (Camden People's Theatre) and Battersea Arts Centre, funded by Arts Council England.
Daphne in Three Movements
A multimedia performance project in development exploring Daphne's myth, trees, transformation, inner awareness and bodily soundscapes. Devised in collaboration with Foxtale Ensemble, Stacie Lee Bennett, Eoin Furbank and Daisy Orton, lead by Prof. Rosemary Klich (East 15). Supported by Arts Council England.
Practice-as-research project (Collaborative Research on Architecture, Creative Kinetics and Somatics) in collaboration with Dr Carolina Vasilikou (Architect and Lecturer), investigating improvisational methods in theatre movement and architecture. More information coming soon.
Between February-December 2018, together with Acting Now (Cambridge social theatre company, directed by Marina Pallares Elias), I led weekly theatre sessions for a group experiencing mental health challenges. Together we created “Side Roads” - a documentary physical theatre performance, inspired by the participants' stories, childhood memories and experiences of being on the road. “Side Roads” toured Cambridge, Huntington and Saint Ives in November-December 2018. Funded by Cambridgeshire Community Foundation. A short written reflection on our creative process coming soon.
