Exile, alienation, weaving wounds into work,

work for thee to do, social misfit, bitter sweet,

unlucky in love, in life, in art.

You, you’re not serious enough,

flesh and bone nothing to where.

nothing about my life

perfect proportions

Serious is not the same as solemn

Making a statement: What the hell are u doing? Writing on art / curatorial / choreographic practice #DalstonBallet #houseofodwyer

June 17, 2016


I formed the Dalston Ballet Company as a work of art in itself and to be able to create work for live performance and also as moving image. We aim to work collaboratively with other Artists and attempt to combine film, movement, music, sound, choreography, in fact all art forms to create a total art work.

The project stems from an inquiry into notions of dramaturgy, theatrical and psycho-sociological, as well as construction of story and narrative.

My practice amounts to an examination of, or quest to discover the truth, beauty, the nature of humanity, and the meaning of Art all from the perspective of fairy tales, the archetypal narratives.
