In 2011 and 2012 I was a core member, a rehearsal and training assistant/leader in the acclaimed and award-winning project Hotel Medea.
Hotel Medea is a six hours immersive theatrical performance from midnight to dawn that invites the audience to be a collaborator through intimacy, collective action and openess to experience a night together in the trilogy and adaptation of the Jason and Medea's myth.
During the six years that ZU-UK developed and performed Hotel Medea, the company created their own training comprised of a wide range of artforms including; actor's training, capoeira, Suzuki, ritualistic and folklore dances from brazil, butoh, voice work, folklore songs from Brazil and Poland, Grotowski's method, immersive and intimate one-to-one's.
Between 2011-12, we played at: Trinity Buoy Wharf as part of LIFT Festival (2011), Summerhall Edinburgh (2011) and Hayward Gallery (2012). In Brazil, Hotel Medea played Brasilia at the Caixa Cultural Centre (2012).

'Utterly unmissable, deeply profound and heartbreaking' *****
'Back home, a few hours later, I fall asleep and it fills my dreams' *****
'Smashes our preconceptions to smithereens, culminating in a hearty breakfast at 5:30am when the audience and cast share memories of a night spattered with blood and tears of regret.' *****

I was a performer and a co-deviser for the Carnaval Taxi, a short 10min performance where the audience was hosted by 3 welcoming ladies, entered an interactive Rio Carnival taxi ride and was taken out, in a stern manner, into an interrogation line-up where 3 brazilian militry police women would interrogate them and make them question their individual values under pressure.
Humble Market was an immersive, interactive, performance exhibition combining technology and performance art that challenges audiences social ideals, their individual stances in their environment and wider placement in the world.
Performed within an experimental approach, the work was performed at the Preston Guild Festival, under a bridge, where the audience rotated between five different vehicles and its performances.
