FIAC Festival: A Residency in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

I am in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil, participating in a two-week exchange residency. The project is a collaboration between Forest Fringe and FIAC Bahia Festival, who are hosting us. I am working alongside Deborah Pearson, and three Brazilian artists – Roberta Nascimento, Laís Machado & Lenine Guevara – sharing our artistic practices, ideas, concerns, questions, strategies, and needs. So far it is proving to richly stimulating and exciting, and I am very inspired to be working with these women.

There will be an open studio sharing on Friday 25th October at 10am, for members of the public to share in our exchange also: fiacbahia.com


Review: Ways To Submit, Frascati Amsterdam

Here’s a review of the recent performance of Ways To Submit at Frascati from Theaterkrant. It’s in Dutch! But google translate assures me it says some very nice things about the show, and that the reviewer would have liked to have seen the work a second time.

Fights & Desires: A Residency in Brazil

I am currently in Recife, Brazil, working with a group of twelve local artists to run a residency project called Fights and desires: exploring performance, audiences, and form. The residency is hosted and organised by TREMA! Plataforma De Teatro, with support of British Council Brazil.

We are working together for two weeks, with a sharing of some outcomes on Saturday 6th April. We’ve been making one-to-one pieces, and thinking about urgencies, resistance, encounters, the theatre space and the city… It’s a total privilege to be getting to know and share time with the artists here!


Reviews: Ways To Submit, NOW19 Festival

A few nice write-ups of my recent run of Ways To Submit at The Yard for NOW19:

“a fantastic and constantly surprising piece of theatre that discusses power on multiple levels”
The Spy In The Stalls, full review here.

“They teach you in Physics that energy neither originates nor disappears but rather transfers and converts into different forms; so power is always present in relationships, given and taken, passed from person to person. We’re watching an experiment that proves that.”
Exeunt Magazine, full review here.
