Highly skilled at public interaction, quick-witted and able to embody any character wholeheartedly, she has worked as a performer within the company, both on small scale walkabout theatre gigs and on larger scale outdoor shows, eg. in Painful Creatures in 2004 (left).
Angie has also worked as a solo artist in the realms of live art and dance, often combining the two.
She has been studying Flamenco dance since 1998 and in that time has studied with many of Spain’s top professionals. She has been involved in various workshops and creative dance residencies, working not only in Flamenco but also in contemporary dance and physical performance, with the aim of broadening her knowledge and dance technique.
