Early Stage Commission (deferred 2019-2020) – When Saturn Returns 

When Saturn Returnswill be a colourful, personality-full and rigorous exploration into the physical & psychological impact that societal ideas and narratives have on women. The creative process will be an embodied investigation that will stem from the autobiographical; unpicking how we (performers Alicia aged 31 and Alys aged 30) have ingrained ideas surrounding gender, relationships, sexuality and measures of success and happiness.


About the artist

Alicia is a dance artist living and working in Newcastle. After completing her BA in Performance, she gained an MA in Creative Practise at Laban in 2013. Alicia is interested in creating work that is both observational and autobiographical. Her work is driven by a fascination towards the complexities of human behaviour and the surreal everyday stories and experiences we all live and share.

I’m interested in creating work that is rigorous, inquisitive, sincere, playful and personality-full. That invites the viewer to share the performers enquires about themselves and the intriguing world we all inhabit.’
