Choreographic enquiries

From intergenerational to participatory pieces, many of my choreographic works raise questions: who gets to dance? How might rhythms connect people? What makes movement meaningful?

Questions in Motion

Participatory dance piece commissioned by Whitechapel Gallery (2019)

Performances with Intoon Dance

In 2018, Kuan-Yu Chen selected me and Finnish dancer Inari Hulkkonen to develop a site-specific piece:

Please Select: [City]

at Wandsworth Arts Fringe (2018)

Please Select: [SHENZHEN]

at Shenzhen Fringe Festival, China (2018)

Later in the year, Kuan and I adapted the piece for the stage.

Together, we also performed a participatory duet at London’s Art Night and Shenzhen Fringe Festival:

Collaborations with musicians

If dance hadn’t been my path, perhaps I would have chosen music. Working with composers, musicians or singers never fails to fascinate and inspire me. My recent and current collaborators from the field of music include:

Pianist Mikaela Livadiotis

Improvisation series (2017), Musical Toys (2018), Play On (2019), Remainder (2020)

This short film is a collaboration between Tiny Dances and Company Concentric, inspired by our work Play On (2019)
