Curating Live Art

Since I started curating when I co founded Luna Nera, live art has been at the core of my practice.
Over the years I've worked with an astonishing number of live artists, encompassing musicians, visual artists who do live performance, circus performers, spoken word artists and others. In some cases I've worked with them to develop their projects, in other cases I've been the conduit for them to showcase their works within exhibitions and events. I have also worked on documenting their projects.

I've worked many times with Paris based artist Natasha Mayran to develop performance projects including
I've worked with Berlin based artist Agnes Domke on
Attitude and Discipline
and curated her projects
Burning Autumn
Black Water/White Water (act of forgetting)

I curated Nazir Tanbouli's Drawing Performance series 2012 - 2016 including
2016 “Drawing Performance” The World Museum, Liverpool
2016 “Drawing Performance” The Bluecoat, Liverpool
2015 “Drawing Performance” The British Museum, London
2015 “Drawing Performance” Chelsea Theatre  Shubbak Festival London
2014 “Full Circle: Drawings And Live Performance” Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Egypt
2014 “Bright Spaces” Kuwait Marina, for GREAT British Week
2013 “Draw to Perform” Performance Space London
2013 Nazir Tanbouli at “Quoz Happens”, The Jamjar, Dubai UAE

I've also been curating live art spoken word events in London in 2018

Some of the artists with whom I've worked on documenting their projects are Nazir Tanbouli, Sumer Erek and Alice Anderson.
