I trained as an actress for the stage in France
(Université de Strasbourg; TNS and Cours Florent workshops)
and later in London (City Lit with Vernon Thompson, Mark Phoenix and
Caroline Pope; Caravanserai Productions with Giles Foreman).
Finding words somehow fallacious, I delved into contemporary dance
in Sydney and later Berlin and attended many classes and performance projects
by Stella Zannou, Britta Pudelko and Rakesh Sukesh
before creating poetic pieces, indoor and outdoor.
My dance is very much influenced by Minako Seki and Atsushi Takenouchi, too.
Based in Marseilles since 2017, I decided to share my passion for movement.
I am facilitating a monthly jam, leading CI workshops in nature, buto-inspired dance classes
and working with Jo Bruhn on the mutuality of movement in CI.
As a poet in motion, I am driven by topics as diverse as planned obsolescence,
smells & landscape, sexualities (from abuse to bliss), the unsaid
and a post-gender discourse.
Several online zines and review like Sexpluszine, Apropos
and the horrendous GoreZine, spoke of me or published my texts.
