INTERVIEW 2 FEBRUARY 2020
1. Where are you now?
Awake in my room at 2:17am in Amsterdam East. I fly to Malta tomorrow.
2. What is your current art practice?
I am now in the 3rd year mime where my practice is a shape-shifting one between maker and performer. I move between the two while researching movement around themes of vulnerability, touch and sexuality. I also sing and write a lot but these practices always seem to stay on the back burner.
3. What is the rubberbodies collective for you?
The rubberbodies for me was my first opening to a more experimental theatre back home in Malta. I found it exciting and challenging to work with them. Now they are collaborators, parents in Amsterdam and definitely mentors.
4. What is lined up in the near future
Performing my own work in Malta next weekend and then performing with the Belgian theatre company BOG.
