Choreographic works includes Set (Lucy Guerin Inc. Pieces for Small Spaces, 2013, EDC Solo Festival of Dance 2014) Now Something Really Final (K77, Berlin 2012), Jurassic Arc (Dancehouse, Melbourne Fringe 2012) as well as a range of collaborative and interdisciplinary projects across music, live art, film, photography and visual arts.
