My common thread
Based in London and Lyon I lead choreographic, performance, research and dance education projects.
The mode of attention of the spectator is always my starting point. I enjoy asking them to prick up their ear, to search in the dark, to play with the rhythm of their breathing, to ‘tune in’ to a different pace. I want to make them alert and often, lead them towards an instrospective stand.
I am currently investigating the idea of pre-show rituals or tailored pre-show practice that would act as an immersion chamber to prepare an audience and encourage an attentive state in the viewer. As part of such interest, solo work Figurines tours theatres accompanied by a meditation class.
I am a longterm collaborator with Composer Alberto Ruiz an artist interrogating the listener’s comfort zone and the construction of listening spaces. Our flagship show BROUHAHA, meaning ‘a noisy and overexcited reaction to something’, premieres Spring 2019.
I work with producer Helen Goodman (Clout, RashDash, Absolutely Cultured). The Collectif Les Particules offers me administrative support for her activities in France. Lola Maury Productions Limited is a Company Limited by Guarantee registered in England and Wales No: 11435876
