In 2018 I collaborated with poet Maria Jastrzebska, and a composer Peter Copley on a project inspired by The Snow Queen story by Hans Christian Andersen.

An Arts Council England Research and Development grant enabled us to work together for 6 month.

The resulting project Snow Q re-imagined this richly symbolic story as a vehicle for exploring contemporary issues: loneliness and social isolation, mental health, gender, sexuality, migration and exile. 

Photographer and video artist , Wendy Pye , performance director Mark Hewitt, actor Rita Suszek, musician Ellie Blackshaw and sound engineer Simon Yapp joined us to realise  a site-specific multi media  event at the Regency Town House , Winter Solstice, December 2018.
