Why do you do what you do?
For much of my life I have trained in both acting and dancing, and for the longest time felt that I had to prioritise one path over the other, it was a decision that never felt right to make. Setting up Momentum Acts with Dana Day, a fellow dancer/actor is allowing us to create work that plays to both strengths. It is our goal to build shows that can allow audiences to enjoy classical texts in new formats with highly physicalised performances.
What’s your role in SparkFest?
Momentum Acts’ contribution to SparkFest is ‘Othello Online’ (a production staged entirely on social media) and for this project, I was entirely behind the scenes as director and editor. You can also hear me in Moving Groves as Macbeth!
