My newest project is currently taking place in 4 countries across Europe. In Britain, Czech Republic, Romania & Germany I am co-creating performative exhibitions, gatherings and spaces for work that will challenge and interrogate national identity and who gets to decide what that national identity is. I am centering immigrant narratives and experiences by working with people from all walks of life, conducting interviews, commissioning their work as poets, sound designers and live artists whilst conducting workshops in my community in Sheffield.
If you are interested in the themes above, have a story you would like to share or an art work you would like to exhibit please get in touch.

These presentations are happening with the support of Perform Europe as part of the Becoming [...] project.
Perform Europe is an EU-funded project aimed to rethink how performing arts works are presented across borders in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way by testing new touring and distribution practices and providing policy recommendations for a future EU support scheme. This 18-month journey includes a research phase, launching a digital platform, testing a support scheme, and designing policy recommendations.
Perform Europe is funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and co-managed by a Consortium of 5 organisations: IETM – International network for contemporary performing arts, the European Festivals Association (EFA), Circostrada, EDN – European Dancehouse Network, and IDEA Consult.
Becoming British is funded by the Necessity Fund, developed with initial support from Sheffield Theatres and supported by SBC. The project is produced by Claire Gilbert.
