dance has evolved throughout her dance career, creating original and insightful
images that reveal the often private and rarely disclosed world of the rehearsal
studio. Her attraction to and understanding of the unique nature of the makers and
making of dance became part of her research for her role in the creation Siobhan
Davies' latest work 'Two Quartets'.

Britain Magazine, Neal's Yard Remedies, Acre Lifts, Focal Press, Siobhan Davies
Dance and the BBC.
