INSPIRING LANDSCAPES
SITE-Specific responsive works

We need to talk about bambi

Hazy nostalgia has brought me to think about Bambi. The iconic Disney film is responsible for twists and turns in my life and is a curious filter to look back. 

Stumbling upon the forest path, I will lead audiences ever deeper into the woodland, unfolding narratives both through visuals and storytelling. An intimate skip through the forest, where seasons bring new adventures and glimpses into the past make you feel a little fuzzy inside.

The project has been funded by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Arts Council England and supported by the Arnolfini and In Between Time. It premiered at the Latitude Festival in 2013. I have worked with performance artists Christopher Green, Dickie Beau, Brenda Waite, Laura Dannequin and Steve Nice and Karen Christopher and have collaborated with costume designer David Curtis-Ring.

We Need to Talk about Bambi has also been performed in Bristol at the Control Room at Redcliffe Bridge, and at Tempting Failure in October and November 2014.

MY WALL IN WORDS

This is a very personal mapping of the ancient walls as a metaphor for the human condition. A guided tour of the interpersonal barriers we construct and the defence strategies we employ to guard ourselves from others.

KEEPING HIS FEET ON THE GROUND

Here I explored the allotment plot as a performance space, putting my own personal stamp on a shared community of skill and tradition. Keeping His Feet on the Ground continues my obsession with making the ordinary extraordinary and drawing magic from the everyday. The shows took place for a limited audience over the summer months, changing as the season evolved.

I know now if I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again. I won’t look any further than my own back yard because if it isn’t there I never really lost it anyway.




 
THE SOLDIER SINGS THE BLUES

Made in response to a residency at the beautifully brutal Nothe Fort in Weymouth. With site responsive film elements by Kerry Deacon and later developed into a studio based performance.

I have a mission from my very own secret service and will be your personal causality of love and war. Exploring the notion of 'all is fair in love and war', I draw parallels between these two seemingly polarized states.
