She/her. I am a Deaf BSL signer, writes poetry in both English and BSL. I prize organic collaborative work created from scratch and improv. I want to work towards cultivating a career in choreographed pieces and visual theatre disciplines like object theatre like masks and puppetry and physical/ mute theatres.
