Lead Artist and Producer: Glas(s) Performance
I am Co-Artistic Director of Glas(s) Performance. I have lived on the Southside of Glasgow for almost nine years in different places and am currently living in Pollokshields. Over this time I have had the privilege to live beside people of all ages and backgrounds. I love the fact that people pop in to borrow something or for a chat after work. I have never really experienced this anywhere else. This project has enabled me find out more about the community we live in and about what it means to be somebody’s neighbour.
I work predominantly in social contexts and have produced, directed and consulted on projects with companies nationally and internationally. I also work at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland as a Visiting Lecturer and Producer of the Contemporary Performance Practice Graduate Festival: Into The New.
I am also Co–Founder of Junction 25, an award- winning radical performance company for young people in residence at Tramway.
Tramway has been a huge part of my life since I moved to Glasgow in 2001 and I have been inspired and influenced by the work that I have seen here. To have the opportunity to work with the team at Tramway to investigate how an international arts venue can make art with and for the community that surrounds it has been a real highlight for me.
