Identity, memory and surveillance are themes around which I investigate relationships between socio-political structures and the body. My work spans Live Performance, Film and Installation. I use collaboradve processes to test live performance methodologies in response to site and context. My unique Live Installations and videos generate uncertainty through satire and wit. Critical triggers of my live work rely upon audience pardcipadon and interacdon. Audio and live installation elements work in tandem to manifest highly charged emotional experiences unfolding momentarily in real time. With a particular focus on the intimate space and the analysis of the body as representation of political agency, my work is realised through sci-fi re-enactments of mythological narratives. Often what arises through my Live Performances is a deep emotional connection between participants and the audience. My primary motivation is to cultivate moments of magic and fantasy. Within this surrealist environment I try to conjure human connection with the viewer and strive to promote a collective sense of tolerance, compassion and empathy.
