I have been dancing, directing and teaching for over 40 years. I was born in England, then lived in Amsterdam and now live in Girona in northern Spain and in Athens, Greece.
My work, both in company and solo, develops dance for theater – a place where an atmosphere of transformation, insight and understanding is allowed without recourse to superficial conclusions. In this environment dancers and light designers are directed to compose pieces instantly; we practice a process of improvisation in rehearsal and at the moment of performance. These refined skills, are a way to enter into ourselves with the light of spontaneity and produce material. This material is fresh to the intelligence of the moment and also linked to the months, years, and times that it has been gestating in the individual and in the individual’s history.
