About me
I'm a queer performer, actor, maker and designer. ALWAYS open to collaboration! Drawn to cinematic tracking shots and bizarre situations which are presented as ordinary & mundane, like the surreal creations of filmmaker Luis Buñuel. Amazed and deeply moved by Ingrid Bergman, Bette Davis, Katharine Hepburn or Paul Newman’s works which feed my passion ever since I can remember. Inspired by female gymnasts, who pervert the air as they twist and fly and smile through it. While training as an architect, I became fascinated by how people use and pervert spaces. As I moved towards performance I began to combine my insight into spaces with my obsession for the language of movies. Shaken, and stirred. My performances feature gymnastics, actresses and cinema, humour and soul; within the space. I've performed at over 15 venues across Europe in my own shows, or others’. As an actor I've been cast in short films that have been selected for various international film festivals. I dream of acting for Lucrecia Martel.

  • A Simple Twist of Fate
    A Simple Twist of FateSet during the final hour of New Years Eve 1959, Adele is tasked with attending to the host of a lavish new years party Herbert Covington - powerful businessman and head of the Covington Household - who wants his thirst for wine quenched.

  • Stigma (Estigma) by Luis Amália & Adam Zmith
    Stigma (Estigma) by Luis Amália & Adam ZmithWhen Luis was 10, he wanted to be a female gymnast, but he was a boy. At 15, he wanted to be desired, but he felt he was too hairy. Tonight, as a performer, he wants to be Ingrid Bergman. But he is a loser. Stigma is the story of how Luis can become who he has always wanted to be. Luis will tell the story of Esther Moya, a powerful gymnast who failed to win a medal. He will re-enact one of Ingrid Bergman’s most moving scenes. And he will share his visit to a sweaty gay sauna. Stigma is a show
