Banner image: Photo of a person in mid movement, stood on both feet and leaning their head to one side so that their face is visible. They are slim, white and in their mid twenties, and have short brown hair. They are wearing a yellow top and yellow shorts. The photo has a subtle pink filter, which softens it and adds warmth.


Latest Shape collaboration: Shape Arts supported Susanna in 2021 during the release of their recent work STIMMING.

Artist Statement: Susanna (she/they) works between the fields of theatre, dance, and film, exploring how movement and the body are encountered both live, and digitally. Being dyspraxic and dyslexic, Susanna is developing a practice that is built on movement as a field for individuality and play, making work through exploring the creative potential of neurodivergence and difference.

Since completing a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in MOVEMENT: DIRECTING AND TEACHING at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, she has developed her professional experience as a facilitator with organisations such as Candoco Dance Company, Bush Theatre, Access all Areas and Turtle Key Arts

Curious about developing an approach to dance that is guided by the senses, Susanna is exploring habitual movement patterns and how the body self regulates through movement. This research has been awarded funding by Arts Council England, and is supported through residencies at The Place, Wellcome Collection, and Siobhan Davies Studios.

Photo of two people reclining, serenely on their backs, on clear plastic exercise balls. They are both slim, white and in their mid twenties, and have short brown hair. The photo is close enough to frame their torsos. The person in the foreground is wearing a yellow top and yellow shorts. The person in the background is wearing a blue vest. Their eyes are closed. The photo has a subtle pink filter, which softens it and adds warmth.
