Laura is a dancer and movement artist who fell into the circus as it swept her off her feet on London’s Southbank one summer night
She has been performing internationally in contemporary circus, dance theatre and immersive performance for over 10 years. Known for emotive performance and poetic movement quality 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.
