A Touch of Ambivalence
BA2 Students at Northern School of Contemporary Dance - 2022
Created for Northern School of Contemporary Dances´ Autumn showcase, NEW GROUND
During our 3-week creation we explored authentic human connection.
This work explores authentic human connection and reflects on how we respond to one another through different lenses. The collective journey through states of care, resistance and play; navigating tension and support through sensitivity and touch.
‘’I really loved practising partner work, contact improvisation, lifts and group work. This improved my collaboration skills and taught me how to dance as a team‘’
- Abbey, NSCD BA2 student
The Place CAT Programme - 2022
Created for The Place CAT programme during their Easter intensive.
Performed at their Summer Show 2022 at the Robin Howard Theatre
The work explores how we can learn and understand more about our environment. About the changes and effect climate change has had on our landscapes, how this can be read through rocks. Sediment also recognises that a challenge of understanding climate change is the timescale; how can we read the changes when they happen so slowly?
‘’I really enjoyed the whole process, especially with my disability being such a huge struggle with my everyday life and dance training. It was great to feel included and to find new ways of moving with an ensemble that works around my body’’
Bethany, NSCD BA2 student
BA3 Dance Programme at University of Lincoln - 2020
This work was created for The University of Lincoln's 2020 Graduation Show
In a world where physical contact is being stripped away, what does it mean to touch and to be touched? How do we cope and connect when restrictions are imposed? How can we hold space and support one another?
‘I loved the environment that they created’

Inspired by the unique patterns and trajectories of landscapes, this piece shifts, connects and reconstructs, allowing images to emerge and imprints to be left behind.
