She has been performing internationally in contemporary circus, dance theatre and immersive performance for over 10 years. She loves a playful, creative devising process and specialises in Chinese pole and aerial pole. She has had a long -standing creative relationship with Mary Bijou Cabaret and Social Club, Firenza Guidi, Crashmat Collective and Joe Wild, and toured for 5 years with Pirates of the Carabina, with many smaller projects alongside.

Laura graduated from Laban with a BA(Hons) in Dance Theatre before completing a year at Flic Scuola Di Circo. Her circus training has been mainly self-researched, her movement and creative work supported by somatic and embodied movement practices, and the wonderful artists and practitioners she has worked with. In 2017 she was supported with a grant from Artists International Development Fund to research and develop choreographic and physical-theatre based work on Chinese Pole with collaborator Tarn Scully at Circus Oz, Melbourne. She has since begun to develop her own work alongside performing for other companies.

Laura is a qualified remedial and sports massage therapist, and student of Wutan Tai Chi and Kung Fu. Her creative writing has featured in a number of productions and artistic projects.
