Artists make the future. Our works are presents. The live experience we create for audiences can resonate for many, many years to come…

About

An alumni of Dartington College of Arts, I am a French independent artist working across arts forms from solo performances, video art, site-specific and live art projects.

I have a vision for works that are poetic, layered, experimental, works that take time, that take place in unusual settings and that are demanding of its audience.

My practice is shifting towards multi-disciplinary performance/installation. Though ambitious in approach, I sense a pull towards stripped, bare, simple elements; gentle transformations of space and energy toward waves; cycles, patterns and repetition gradually, subtly shifting and changing to bring about ‘the realisation that at first glance we may think we’re looking at a constant, but only through careful observation can we see that things are not the same.’

My concerns are also changing from autobiography as a mirror for others to approaching ideas of community and the role and responsibilities of the individual with a group… aka society.

My work has been presented at Warwick Arts Centre, Cambridge Junction, Embrace Arts, Goldsmith College, PDSW and was programmed at the Fierce International Festival, Expo, Sprint (Camden People Theatre), Nottingham European Arts and Theatre Festival (NEAT), Hatch Nottingham, Nottdance Festival and Sacred at Chelsea Theatre, Curve Theatre.
