A Gap Year For The Soul is our Artist of The Month in our Leadenhall Street Venue for November. 


My norm [all I had known] was disrupted [through illness and disability]. I realised I could make a difference by disrupting the norm.

Disabled and facing ongoing health deterioration at an age when everyone in life is expected to thrive, the storyteller decided to breathe in and observe her experience. Using voice, body, improvisation, Ecotherapy, neuroscience, NSDR, nature, the environment individuals find themselves in, playback theatre, music, writing and poetry, she engages the audience’s imagination to inform and express. Her work is concerned with making the invisible visible in completely abstract, experimental and experiential ways. Immersing the audience, she questions identity, connection, resilience, thriving, energy, neuroscience, environments and nature. She advocates for welfare policy reform to enable those with unpredictable symptoms and disabilities to gain meaningful employment without financial insecurity and to have society meet those affected in the middle by creating support services and products and social inclusion (particularly lacking for the 18-65 year olds) that helps people thrive, not just survive. Her motto is ‘you are more, what is your more?’
