Awarded 'Best Dance of Dunedin Fringe' and the 'Sydney Fringe Touring Award' from Wellington Fringe.
Lydia has an ongoing collaboration with Talia Rothstein; together they have created ‘Every Room Has its Rules’ (Aeso Studios), ‘Lounge’ (Mars Rooftop Performance Art),‘Damn Good Smoke’ (Bluestone Church Arts Space) and ‘Their Body and Other Tales’ (Brunswick Mechanics Institute residency 2019). Lydia is currently apart of the Emerging Choreographers Program (2019 - 2020) at Dancehouse, has received support from The Australian Council of the Arts to attend workshops in Europe and from Dancehouse & Ausdance to create their solo ‘Precarious Skin’ (Auckland Fringe 2017 & Bluestone Church Arts Space).
Lydia is currently studying Gender and Diversity Studies at La Trobe to help dismantle the patriarchy and colonial structures that continue to dominate this colonised land we call ‘Australia’. These studies are informing Lydia’s practice & upcoming work, giving a reflexive look at the importance of art-making in the midst of a political and climate crisis.
