    Louisa is a north-west based dance artist, and lecturer. She is particularly interested in interdisciplinary performance, and previously created performance work with Near Miss Company which explored the relationship between movement, live sound and physical risk-taking. She is passionate about artistic collaboration and in 2019, she took part in an Arts Council funded research project ‘D.A.N.C.E – Developing A New Comedy Experience’ to explore the relationship between improvisation, dance, and comedy. This led to the formation of the group ‘Flip Flop’ which consists of Louisa, comedians Stephanie Laing and Daniel Nicholas. Currently Louisa’s work is using movement and comedy to explore themes of identity, exiting religion, and spirituality.

    Following the completion of an MSc in Cultural Events Manager in 2017 (Distinction), she worked as a freelancer in festival management and assistant producing for China Plate Theatre. She has pursued research interests regarding the use of cultural policy by city and county councils to invoke economic regeneration.
