Rooted Dance Maker

Izzy retrained in contemporary dance and became an artist in her late 20s, thanks to free government-run schemes and charitable foundations. Today she is a dance artist, poet, facilitator, advocate, curator and performance maker, working in diverse contexts with an emphasis on access, participation and inclusion. Her work includes digital and live commissions, a solo performance-in-progress, long-term participatory projects and an expanding poetry publication and performance history.

Her practice centres creative resistance and collective joy; rituals of care, connection, embodiment and empowerment. Projects are often participatory, intergenerational or interdisciplinary, and exist to explore the edge-lands – challenging binaries, exploring boundaries and creating space for dialogue. Think wonky utopias, witch clubs, open source art spaces and long-term arts for health initiatives. She welcomes art that expands beyond traditional spaces, audiences, formats.

‘For me, art doesn’t come in pieces. It’s a way of thinking, being and imagineering, and it’s every person’s birth-right’.
