I am a dance and performance scholar with a specialist interest in the intersections of the aesthetic and the political in interdisciplinary movement practices and experimental dramaturgical processes. I joined Kingston University London in 2014, having previously taught at the University of Surrey. I am Senior Lecturer in Dance and Postgraduate Research Coordinator for the Department of Performing Arts and the School of Arts. I teach undergraduate modules on choreographic analysis, dance theory, critical theory and research methodologies; I supervise interdisciplinary doctoral projects and coordinate the training and recruitment of PhD students across the Performing Arts and the School of Arts. I am Co-Chair of the KSA Athena Swan Steering Group and a member of the KSA EDI in Research subgroup. I hold an MA (dist., AHRC-funded) in Performance and Culture from Goldsmiths College University of London (2003-2004). I received my PhD in Dance Studies from the University of Surrey, funded by a university scholarship (2004-2007). My first monograph, Jonathan Burrows: Towards a Minor Dance, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2019 in the "New World Choreographies" series. Other recent publications include articles in Dance Research Journal, Performance Philosophy, Performance Research, Choreographic Practices and Contemporary Theatre Review. I am Co-convenor of the Theatre, Performance and Philosophy working group of the Theatre and Performance Research Association and long-time collaborator of Triennale Milano Teatro (Italy), which supports forward-thinking and socially-engaged performance practice.
Senior Lecturer in Dance; Postgraduate Research Coordinator for the Department of Performing Arts and the School of Arts; KSA Athena Swan Co-Chair
My research revolves around the Deleuzoguattarian notion of ‘minor practice' and its articulation in current choreography; diffractive methodologies and Karen Barad's notion of entanglement; questions of subjectivity and community in current choreographic and dramaturgical processes; the ethical, po(i)etic and critical potentialities of experimental and collaborative dance practices.
I am Postgraduate Research Coordinator for the School of Arts and for the Department of Performing Arts. I welcome proposals for postgraduate research (including practice-based) in the following areas: dance and performance theory, performance philosophy, dance and new materialism, dance and politics, interdisciplinary performance practices, British and European contemporary choreography.
