Helen produces original choreography for dance and theatre, drawing on the vitality of movement within both Cuban and contemporary dance, as well as a love of language, to create physically immersive, narrative movement work.
Recent choreographic works include ‘Last Act’, performed as part of the Birmingham Literature Festival; ‘ Beyond Words‘, combining contemporary dance and sign language, and performed as part of The Birmingham Weekender Festival; and ‘Marina’, a solo work devised and performed at The Southbank Centre as part of the Poetry International Int Festival. Helen has also worked as lead choreographer on three major Arts Council England funded projects, including a new professional production of The Darlaston Dog Fight, showcased at The Arena Theatre in March 2018, with RnD workshops and performances in 2016. She was movement director on a community-based dementia project, I’d Do It All Again for Midland’s Actors Theatre, touring care homes and day centres throughout June 2018. She is currently developing a new solo piece for film ‘Naked’, based on themes from her debut collection of poems ‘Unable Mother’.
