Almost 20 years later, my practice and my career have spanned two continents, a multiplicity of disciplines and contexts, which have generated an extensive experience of activating creative communities of artists and audiences. While based in Paris (2001 to 2011), I assumed leadership over the performing arts residency programs of Paris’ largest independent arts centre, Mains d’Oeuvres, a pioneer in the ‘new territories for the arts’ European arts ecology, whose mission is to inspire people to live creatively by exposing them to arts and artists in non-conventional ways. In 2011, I relocated to Australia as Artistic Director/CEO of Dancehouse. After 9 years of leadership, I am proud to have shaped Dancehouse into being such an outstanding a connecting gate between artists, new audiences and international contexts and markets. Additionally, I am founder and co-editor of the Dancehouse Diary a print and online publication connecting the body to the social and the political. I am (or have been) an active member of numerous transcontinental networks, more recently, Aerowaves, TransEuropHalles and Asia Network for Dance AND+.
My strongest current interests are in artists’ mobility, situated context curatorship, cultural competency and alternative economic models for the arts.
