I am a creative interested in performance, media and participative methodologies. I work across a range of participation and participative platforms from community training projects through to installations and performances. I set up the community theatre, art and media company ‘MetaPlay’ in 2005, to deliver projects in and with a range of communities and groups. Alongside Metaplay, I have been developing my own site-specific arts practice, which has been, in the main, arts and performance based.
Gimme, Gimme, Gimme More: LOVE! is an audience interactive show with live performance about dating with your clothes on,using live webchat, audience interaction, and a bit of singing and dancing. More: Gimme, Gimme, Gimme More! LOVE.
I also perform as a poet. TIME=MONEY, was based on a collection of poetry I had blogged. It is an intimate 1-2-1 performance of poetry, developed as a site-specific, pop-up event for festivals, quiet spaces etc. More: TIME=MONEY
I am also a regular performer at The Poetry Brothel – London, a performance art event, where I perform as ‘Bibi-Synthe’ and with The Bloody Poets . I have added a Video Links page of some recorded performances.
