I have am currently illustrator-in-residence with Natalie Su Dance Company – collaborating on new works entitled ‘Courage’ and ‘Beyond Boundaries’, illustrating live in an interdisciplinary Tedx talk and collaborating on a series of short films ‘Lingua Franca’ (due for release later in 2017).

This page documents the process drawings, dance sketchbooks and illustrations – and will be regularly updated.

As part of my collaboration with Natalie Su Company and principal dancer David Kam, we were invited to perform our interdisciplinary process at TedX Manchester

Lingua France : Bridging Artistic Languages by David Kam

“Speaking Pencil. Drawing Violin. Listening Body.”

The event was a live multidisciplinary exchange between David Kam, dancer, choreographer Natalie Su Robinson, illustrator Joanna Layla and violinist Henry Webster.

Here are some photos of the live illustration and dance performance – soon to be featured on TedX + in a short film
