Having trained at London Contemporary Dance School from 2006 to 2009, they have worked with Seke Chimutengwende & Friends, Dog Kennel Hill Project, Janine Harrington, Florence Peake and English National Opera, among others.
They work as producer and dramaturg with Seke Chimutengwende and Es Morgan, alongside teaching technique, improvisation and choreography at the University of Roehampton.
Charlie completed a Masters of Research in Choreography and Performance in 2014. Their choreographic practice often explores the tensions, ironies and possibilities of witchcraft, bringing it into contact with experimental dancing and radical politics. They are currently interested in the divinatory power of dancing and writing to channel alternative visions of the future.
