Embodied filmmaking

Article & Talk


During the 2020 pandemic I wrote an article on how to adapt and see the opportunities in the limits of the Zoom environment.


Moving with the Screen on Zoom: Reconnecting with Bodily and Environmental Awareness, International Journal of Screendance, 12, (2021): 72-95


In March 2022, I gave a talk drawing from the article on how to remain embodied when using screen technology. 

Audio guided practice


When making the documentary Inside the Dance, I developed a practice that I cal Dancing with the Camera where the camera becomes my dance partner.


I gave a workshop at Coventry’s Dance and Somatic Conference in 2019 based on this practice and I produced an audio guided practice for the somatic toolkit for ethnographers which can be accessed online. 

Film & Chapter


I wrote a chapter about my kinesthetic and embodied experience of moving with and filming the moving body of Emma Waltraud Howes a dancer and artist performing outdoors at Kew Gardens.
