Background: Physiotherapy graduate. Started out as a Breaker at age 18
The focus is on getting the right aesthetic without compromising one’s body – often artists/dancers compromise their physicality to achieve certain movements. My focus is on how to achieve the right style, look, moves without causing extra stress to the body.
Some friends asked if I wanted to go to a show. It turned out to be the UK B-Boy championships. I met some students on the journey home who ran a session they had organised, that took place twice a week at Reading University, so I used to go there after school.
I don’t have a favourite. It’s more about the movement, the feel and what the piece is saying.
Something they’re comfortable with. The environment has to be right, if you don’t feel comfortable you won’t open up. The wrong space can be very limiting!
I auditioned for Rigoletto in 2018. I started working with them as a result – and would’ve been part of As The World Tipped, but due to Covid this did not go ahead. I was invited again for Me vs Me.
I started in a ground-based performer role in Rigoletto. Later, I continued to get involved and expressing an interest in how things worked. Jamie showed me some of the basics in climbing techniques and rigging and it went from there. I went on to complete my IRATA Level 1 Technician in Rigging & Wire work.
Being mindful of the space you’re in. With equipment, checking, then checking again, then checking again!
