What inspires you as an artist?

My inspirations as an artist lie within the realms of memory and experiences I have had as a human being and are therefore contained inside my own body.

I am inspired to perform internal investigations to reawaken memory and form movement from this process. Darkness, absurdity, parody, and comedy are my themes and I live them through the expressive and grotesque body in a performance art solo that results in act of contrition.

Tell us about your Imago project:

I will create/choreograph/direct a conceptual performance art solo to be performed live before an audience. This solo will be made up of grotesque and expressive movement vocabulary, that of which I will source material based on my research into the experiences of the 300 imprisoned men during the Battle Of Wigan Lane 1651. Also I will adapt the material I will source for the live solo into a dance film to be included in a presentation of how I made the work, alongside a co presenter (historian) on the history of The Battle If Wigan Lane within the library. 

Who can take part?

The watching audience
The public that visits the library
Students/scholars/historians/dance/movement artists/performance art artists/other performance soloists.
