Susanna is interested in how movement can tell stories by writing through space. Growing up, she trained and performed in acting, singing and dance. At university Susanna studied English and Drama, gaining skills and experience in devising theatre, gravitating towards physical theatre productions and movement modules. She also developed an interest in scenography, looking at aspects of space and the movement of the performer and audience in space and time.
After graduating, Susanna continued to explore performance processes where movement and the body are central. At Dance Research Studio, under the mentorship of Jacky Lansley, she trained in interdisciplinary performance practices and devised and performed in site-specific projects. She now enjoys training and performing with Candoco Dance Company who offer an inclusive creative environment for disabled and non disabled artists. While teaching MA Advanced Theatre Practice students at Central, Susanna offered principles of movement for students to integrate into their theatre making practice. The experience fuelled her interest in how she can facilitate the actor or student in an experience of self-discovery, confidence and ownership in their movement. Susanna is also movement director for ByJove Theatre Company who specialise in reinvigorating classical texts, myths and legends to explore contemporary issues.
