I have been a performer and theatre-maker since 1995. I originally trained in theatre with Jacques Lecoq in Paris in the 1990s. After a few months of Feldenkrais lessons for myself, I knew I had to do the practitioner training. I did this in Paris, where I was living, between 2003 and 2008.
I am passionate about sharing this work with other people. How can we all be more human? Feldenkrais has some brilliant tools to help.
I lived in Paris for 10 years and have also lived in Portugal and Tokyo, working as a theatre-maker, director, performer, puppeteer, dancer and Feldenkrais practitioner.
I have taught drama and Feldenkrais, together and apart, in many universities including Cambridge, Kent and Queen Mary, and at East 15, Rose Bruford College and the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.
My solo show, Everything Must Go, with Beady Eye Theatre, toured nationally and internationally and won a Total Theatre Award and the Arches Brick in 2009/10. Cooking Ghosts also toured England in 2012/13.
I have recently completed a PhD at Royal Holloway University of London on Feldenkrais and puppetry. This research was supported by the AHRC.
I improvise with movement, puppets and a few words and write stories.
