What are you most looking forward to/excited about the project? 

I am most excited about looking at Leicester and it’s Heritage with fresh eyes!  

What is your Art form/ Performance Style/ Background? 

My art form is Drama, but because I also have a love of dance, movement and physical theatre will definitely be involved. I enjoy playing around with language and words and interweaving these with movement, sound and visuals. I hope the work will reflect everyone’s skills and challenge them to play, make mistakes, learn from others, work as a team and through this process find their voice and together we will tell an exciting story of Heritage .

Heritage to me means my family, my roots, my culture, my upbringing, my city, my memories and being proud and respectful of the things that make me, me!
