Skin Hunger was a collaboration with 3rd Year students on the Theatre & Performance Degree at The Arden, Manchester, in Autumn 2020. We created an ensemble piece about our need for human touch.
‘Intense, expressive & intricately choreographed.’ Circles & Stalls
‘Visually stunning… a contemporary performance piece for and of our times’ Reviewer Number 9
‘Our students were supported to reach an outstanding level of performance that in some cases was just not anticipated. The environment she created was professional and intensive, yet also enjoyable, and the student feedback has been overwhelmingly positive’

U(S)TOPIA was a collaboration with 3rd year students on the BA Theatre & Professional Practice Course at Coventry University created for the City of Culture October theme of Utopia in October 2021.
‘The human race has been evicted, as they journey to the unknown, they look beyond their dying planet to where Utopia might lie. Is the Garden of Eden buried in the stars? Will they escape from limbo?’
“Our final year BA theatre and professional practice students had a fantastic time working with Tmesis. Eli provided a perfect balance of teaching, creative collaboration, mentoring and artistic direction across the ‘U(s)topia project. She encouraged and inspired the students to create work of a very high standard as emerging theatre-makers, and we are very proud that this particular project marked our course contribution to Coventry’s ‘City of Culture 2021’ programme.”
