Debris enjoys the finite experience of one night, one stage, one audience – the way each performance is different; from festivals, to theatres or cyphers on street corners. She has performed in China, America, Poland, Germany, Slovakia, Holland and all over the UK and has always been keen to travel and challenge herself. She has also worked on Radio, with DJs, a Choir, a cellist, a guitarist, film makers, bands and dancers. She loves to collaborate, work with a clear goal in mind or just create for fun. If you want to work with Debris, commission her or book her for a gig, please get in touch.
Debris enjoys all kinds of teaching; from lecturing at The University of Nottingham, to one off workshops in alternative education centres, libraries and festivals. Her main passion is projects with legacy, projects that focus on building a community which supports young people… in fact, all people, to find what they love, what they need and what they want to achieve! She is usually busy running Mouthy Poets CIC, a collective that represent this interest, however she is always keen to teach and if she can’t there is plenty of poets in Mouthy that can support your project/idea/needs.
Debris has recently had her debut pamphlet, Pigeon Party, published with Flipped Eye Publishing Ltd. and is currently a menthe on the prestigious Jerwood/Arvon mentoring scheme. She has written for BBC radio, magazines and journals including being published by Louis Vuitton, Holland Park Press and Oxford Poetry Society. Despite her dyslexia, Debris loves working with form and challenging the connections between the page and performance. She loves a challenge and deadlines and writing in general.
