About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Arist
Location United Kingdom
Introduction is an artist, producer, facilitator. Often working collaboratively with other artists whose practices reach beyond disciplinary definition to make performance. Together their works have been presented outdoors, site specifically in unique buildings or as installation, offering audiences the opportunity to encounter performance in unexpected spaces. Alone his work focuses on relationships, between people and places, bringing our attention to fleeting moments that sometimes pass unseen. Using autobiography and the body as beginnings for exploring trauma and intimate human experience, he works with text, touch and light to develop visual poetries and emotive environments where thoughts and bodies shift between the ordinary and the ethereal. Luke facilitates lectures and workshops on disability and the body in performance across the UK. He wrote and convenes the module, Dance and Disability for the Royal Academy of Dance’s Masters in Teaching Dance and currently works with Candoco Dance Company as Head of Learning and Development. Collaborations often begin from the shared interest in actively seeking to change perceptions of the body and the human condition.
