In my work I examine the intersection between body, space, memory, place and the everyday. Whilst investigating the body in spaces that may otherwise be taken for granted; not seen or simply forgotten or neglected, my work aims to transform this view through a series of ‘serious and playful events’ in the urban everyday. I have undertaken a practice-based approach to examine how concepts of place, memory and new perceptions may be created whilst interacting in everyday environments through choreography; a range performances and interactions.

Filmed excerpts and the interaction with mundane everyday space, sites and the urban landscape, have become key in determining differences, meaning and responses to the common and everyday space, objects and rituals. As part of the process I have used the body as research tool and object, movement as interaction and experimental methodologies to perform, document and analyse the process and how all may become morphed into a new set of narratives.
