I am a multi-disciplinary artist that likes to express my views through live art and film using poetry, breakdancing and theatre.
Through these different art forms, I share my personal politics on sexuality, gender, racism, classism and homophobia. I aim to identify the struggles faced in trying to maintain individuality, but also highlighting the cultural limitations, beliefs and society’s stereotypes that I do not adhere to.
Throughout my developing career I have worked with a variety of artists such as, playwright Roy Williams, Company 3, Talawa Theatre Company, Duckie, The Cocoa Butter Club, David Hoyle, Ursula Martinez, Ella Mesma Company and Some Voices. I have also performed as a dancer at Sadler’s Wells Theatre and The London Olympic Opening Ceremony 2012.
My first live solo performance ‘I Am A Woman’ was created in Jamaica, and went on to to develop a video adaptation of the piece which screened at the BFI Flare Film Festival 2017. As well as the BFI, it has also screened at seven film festivals across London, Berlin and New York.
I am currently working with Ella Mesma company’s show ‘LadyLike’. This piece has been very significant to how I have chosen to explore with this piece as it has really helped free my vulnerability and how I express and portray that onstage.
I was also the Artistic Director of the Duckie QTIPOC Collective for young people between 18-26yrs and have also set up a revolutionary and exciting night called M!X !T! which aims to bring everyone together for a night of dancing, amazing shows and great vibes.
