Research interests

Working title: Reclaiming cabaret. A queer haunted autoethnography of real, researched and imagined stories of cabaret past and present. 

I use autoethnography, hauntology, and queer method, to recount my life in a small touring cabaret dance company in Italy, exposing the gap in recent dance history pertaining to British dancers working the cabaret nightclubs of Europe in the 1970s and 1980s. I also story people and places from the origins of the modern cabaret in fin-de-siècle Paris, bringing the past and present together in a magically real space, where real, researched and imagined lives meet, haunt and interact within my lived experience.
