In August I took part in a one-week ‘lab’ for choreographers in Canberra with choreographer Nat Cursio in the role of provocateur. It was extraordinary!
I used the time to work on POTENTIAL in a focused away-from-home setting and I am super pleased with the results. Feeling full of refined ideas, new ideas, and new connections before heading into to the studio with the dancers for a final three weeks of creative work leading up to the premiere season at Melbourne Fringe Festival. Exciting!!!

Our final 3 week development is behind us and Overworld has become a piece. Next time we meet (in April) we’ll be in our performance venue (Substation in Newport) for a few more rehearsals before production week. Very exciting!!!
Opening night is on APRIL 30th for a 9 show season as part of the Next Wave Festival — mark your diaries!

I am in Canberra at the moment rehearsing for No Place, an interdisciplinary project directed by Adelina Larsson.
Each morning I step out onto the balcony surrounded by lush gardens and enjoy a brief meditation as the sun rises higher in the sky. It’s such a great way to start the day calm, grounded and grateful.
Thanks comfy red blanket, thanks birdies, thanks sunshine, thanks birch trees, and thanks cup of tea that’s waiting for me inside!
