I enjoy teaching and see it as an opportunity to explore ideas with people in laboratory set ups. One of the biggest influences on my teaching work was the development of a project over two years that investigated sensory experience and dancedevised with people from the blind and visually impaired community people in Scotland
I often lead lab intensives for professional artists and have developed courses for students and professionals that explore cultural phenomena through choreography, performance and film. Starting points have included magic and illusions in collaboration with a close-up magician, the creation and performance of online identities, privacy and Coppola's film The Conversation (1976)and bodies and other objects in fairy tales
I have written courses for University of Chichester in the dance department where I work with undergraduate students and postgraduate researchers. My specialisms are moving image practices and choreographic practices with an emphasis on performance installation and transmedia work.
My practice-led doctoral research was in adapting choreography to the screen with a focus on corporealities and argued for screen adaptation as a way of revealing unique thinking by choreographers.
