One in a Million - INTOTO DANCE, London One in a Million was created for INTOTO DANCE, a company of graduate contemporary dance students at London Studio Centre. The piece takes as a starting point the idea of Andy Warhol’s “assembly line effect”, the concept of re-producing an iconic image of a personality on a mass scale.
Aeon - CAT DanceEast, Ipswich Aeon was created for Level 5 Centre for Advanced Training students at the DanceEast in Ipswich. The word originally means “life” or “being” and the work is a short sketch, choreographic reflection on the cycles of life on Earth and on what makes species survive and develop- strength, beauty, group instincts, their ability to dominate and protect each other. 
OUR HOUSE - CAT The Lowry, Salford The work was created for the students at the Centre for Advanced Training at The Lowry, Manchester. Having visited a large collection of works by M.C. Escher I was fascinated by his symmetries, play with architecture, perspective and the impossible spaces. I wanted the choreography to evoke images from Escher’s work, such a never-ending spirals, morphing shapes, mirrored phrases and upwards floating rivers.
