Angela's skills and interest in the physical-life of a piece bring into focus the subtle details of characterisation, and extends to larger ensemble movement and the overall shape of the space - both in stylised and naturalistic work.
Specific interests include: - devising of original material and physical vocabulary (with our without text, naturalism and stylized) - character work (in-depth development, aging, working with particular physical requirements) - ensemble development - creating environment/ atmosphere, crowd scenes, movement scores and sequences - collaborating with different performance artists (i.e. actors, directors, circus artists, writers, makers)
Angela works with the belief that each action has an intention. Every movement - individually and collectively, in abstraction and in naturalism - has a thought behind it that is grounded in the actor/ performer.
I approach each project with the desire to serve the needs of the piece. My expertise is in collaborating with director, designers and actors to create material and to ensure through-line and cohesiveness throughout the performance piece.
