I enjoy teaching in different situations. The main influences on my teaching style are the workshops developed by the performance company Goat Island which focused on response and conversation across a group.My teaching is also shaped by working for two years with blind and visually impaired people investigating sensory experience.
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.
I have also developed intensive courses for students and professionals that explore cultural phenomena through performance and film. Starting points have included magic and illusions in collaboration with a close up magician, online identities, privacy and Coppola's film The Conversation (1976)and bodies and other objects in fairy tales.
My practice-led doctoral research was in adapting choreography to the screen with a focus on corporealities and argued for adaptation as away of revealing unique thinking by choreographers.
I lead lab intensives for professional practitioners, most recently for Lightmoves Festival of Screendance in Limerick alongside Lucy Cash and with Becky Edmunds for South East Dance for the Random Acts commissioning scheme.
