I’m a genderqueer performance artist in the West Midlands making performances which mix endurance, visual arts, low-fi tech, film and installation.
It’s visceral and usually physically exhausting pushing what my body can take.
Trust is central to my work, often trusting my safety to the audience while asking them to trust in me. I strip away all my supports leaving a tender and violent performance.
Our place in the environment, how we occupy space and time, a fascination with the fetishization of Nuclear dread and an obsession with outdated hopes for the future all bleed into my work.
Research and experimentation inform my performances starting with a basic idea and playing around with different materials and techniques before committing to the research. I find it essential to have both working together as the physical often alters the direction of the research.
Adopting a low-fi visual style binding grunge with glitter and grime to make beautifully dirty work.
I’ve performed for Itch Collective, Little Wolf Parade, Word of Warning, HFWAS, Edited Arts, Warwick Bar Fete, Black Hole Club, The WIG and Grasslands.
