Higher Education

I’m currently Course Director for Postgraduate Dance at Bath Spa University where I work with students in the areas of film, and collaborative interdisciplinary performance practice. I have a Teaching Fellowship from Bath Spa and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Creative Practice

My creative practice centres around choreography and film. I am interested in the language and design of movement. The design of movement in my practice is choreography constructed for and in ‘live’ performance, and choreography created for, and by, the camera, and in the editing of film.

Research

The main strand of my current research concerns the relationship between the dancer and the lens. It draws on, and informs, my practice as a filmmaker. A particular focus of this inquiry is the long take in screendance making and the nature of the dancer/camera relationship as a Pas de Deux.
