I am a writer and artist working with text and performance. Born in Ireland, I live in the South West of England. My work uses constraints, structuring rules, and new and familiar material to question category and genre divisions including around identity and agency. I make solo and collaborative performance works that use language, gesture, and digital interfaces to examine how individuals are shaped by cultural and social forces. Works look at the performer’s body as policed by economic, political and cultural narratives, at how ‘voice’ functions to place someone, and at how the language perpetuates inequalities. Recent live work includes ‘Breath Pieces’ choreographed by Rosanna Irvine (Tramway, Glasgow, June 2018); ‘telling time’ (Jamboree, Devon, June 2018); ‘threaded insert’ (Plymouth Art Weekender, 2017; Cardiff, May 2018); ‘subject to gesture’ (Liverpool, Apr 2017); ‘his voice’ (Plymouth, Oct 2015; Manchester, Feb 2016), ’flat-head self-tapping’ at Chelsea School of Art (May 2015) and ‘answering machine’ for Experimentica14 at Chapter Cardiff (Nov 2014). I was commissioned to write texts to accompany work by artists including Nathan Walker, Katy Connor, Steven Paige, and LOW PROFILE. Critical publications include essays in C21 Literature, Open Letter, Performance Research Journal and Journal of Writing in Creative Practice. I teach part-time at Plymouth University, and have managed a variety of exhibition, installation and performance projects. I am a director of artdotearth.org, a member of CAMP, on the board of Soundart Radio, and chair of the board of Take A Part. Devon
