I have been working with choreographers and dancers since 2002, providing creative and technical support for a variety of projects. In 2005, I designed lighting for a choreographer called Tanja Råman who was touring a solo around Wales. Ten years later we have a dance company – TaikaBox – and a family and we moved to Finland.
Over the years I have developed a toolkit that enables me to work with light, sound and image that responds to a dancer’s movement, or the input of musicians, audience or any external source. This is based on a variety of cameras and sensors, projectors and sound/lighting kit, all linked together by an application called Isadora. This system enables me to be flexible and quickly respond to the needs of performers.
