The 4th Kaleidoscopic Arts Platform will take place on May 19th! It is once again part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe. We've been successful in securing funding from the Wandsworth Arts Council and we're embarking on a Crowdfunder campaign in April.


We will showcase choreography by Helen Cox, Jayne Port and Feet off the Ground Dance and also my work 'Living with Sin' will be on again.


There will also be a photography exhibition curated and co-created by Elisabeth Schilling.


Find all information and buy tickets on www.kaleidoscopic-arts.co.uk/fourth-platform


Join us for an informal and intimate night where you can be close to the dance and gain deeper insight into the artistic process.

Last week Margarita Gómez and I used the dramatic light and lovely location of Café Berlín in Santiago to film material for a new work with the working title "Berlin". What does 'home' mean to you?


A few days later, again at Café Berlín, I performed "Berliner Lieder", improvisations to songs about Berlin, as part of "100 en 1 día" Festival Santiago.


Thank you to Margarita and Cristobal Koch of Café Berlín.

From our third Kaleidoscopic Arts network meeting I have created a write-up in two parts.


We invited all attendants to think back at the opportunities they had taken part in and to share their experiences with each other. Each and every opportunity is valuable and useful and has great advantages, but it may not fit everyone’s needs. The purpose of the meeting and the write-up is to invite choreographers to think proactively about the opportunities they apply for and to make informed decisions.


Find part I here and part II here.


Happy Easter and end of the first quarter of 2016! May the rest of the year bring great opportunities and the ability to take full advantage of them!

Despite the fact that dance schools along with many other schools, shops, restaurants and organisations are mostly closed during February I was lucky to find two great intensive workshops with Rodrigo Chaverini Hernández, where photographer Gian Franco Costa took this wonderful shot during an improvisation.

After being absent from writing since graduation, I have now taken it up again and I'm looking forwards to making regular contributions to the ArtsKaleid blog in addition to our blogger Cecilia's work.

Yesterday I performed for Yasmin Sas again. Together with four women we rehearsed "Enduring Reality" throughout October and November. I absolutely love dancing in Yasmin's pieces. Her process is challenging, but she provides a safe and nurturing environment in which to experiment and dare expression. The performance took place as part of Partage Danse at the Pentameters Theatre, an intimate, rustic feeling pub theatre in Hampstead. Looking forwards to future Partage Danse events.


Partage Danse is an intimate platform for dance artists to express and share their continuing exploration. Follow them on Facebook to stay updated with their events.
