E(L)LE Writing, re-writing, claiming,
owning, becoming.


E(L)LE is an exploration of construction/deconstruction of trauma, using the body as a medium to present the development of a life. Drawing from existence as a Black trans*body in an attempt to decolonize identity and present vulnerability whilst maintaining agency over oneself.

They are trained in ballet & modern dance, and have performed on stages around the world, particularly in the UK and Germany. Now a freelance artist, with a multi-disciplinary approach to performance, combining their activism and life experience as a black trans* body to create provocative, yet honest work.
