I have pretty much abandoned my Blog in the past couple of weeks. But I have been so busy. Last weekend me and the amazing Madame H and Madame T from DPerfromance had a scandalous time at Beacons Festival. Our time consisted of ruining wedding dresses, getting our tights caked in mud and mayonnaise (don't ask) and attempting to fit all three of our wardrobes into one tent.  One of the main highlights was hanging out at the Impossible Lecture tent, alongside blind navigation of the festival site with Jordan Nelson and Hamish Logan. 
 Once leaving beacons I was straight up to Edinburgh, to perform at Dance Base with Sophie Unwin (70/30 Split). We were showing Content part 1: as part of the Heads Up events. We got such a warm reception and really wonderful responses and feedback from the audiences. We really cant wait to go back next year. 
 Finally (and most exciting for me) I was lucky enough to be invited to LAB in Leeds to present my idea for  IDEA_Assembly . 
 After nearly not been able to pitch earlier in the day I am so glad that I made it as was voted the  winner ! 
 I would like to thank everyone that came, the judges, LAB and everyone that voted for me. 
 I will be posting what I get up to during my residency everyday and will be showcasing the results on the 15th Sept. Hope to see people there!
