“I am a theatre maker, performance artist, director and curator. Teaching has always been concurrent with my practice. My entire career and ethos as a practitioner are rooted in physical theatre; my training has been informed by a diverse collection of influences including Lecoq, Bausch, Laban, Alexander Technique.

As a solo performer I have generated a body of work comprising numerous experimental one-off cabaret outings and theatre shows such as What Else? (Oval House), Where Are You From? (Oval House, CPT, tour of Northern Ireland and NY). There have, in addition, been collaborations with established companies such as Wishbone, Dende Collective and the multi award-winning Ridiculusmus, with whom I have enjoyed a long and continuing association, receiving a ‘Significant Contribution’ award from Total Theatre in 2014. Currently I am curating, devising, directing and producing Ms. Paolini’s Phantasmagoria Cabaret, a deconstructed cabaret programed and supported by Hoxton Hall.”
