Luca is a Newcastle based artist, making new socially engaged work that sparks conversations inside and outside of theatre spaces. She is an associate artist of ARC Stockton, Cambridge Junction and has been a movement practitioner with Frantic Assembly since 2022.
She is a writer, performer and dramaturg that asks big questions with playfulness. She collaborates with other artists/companies and makes her own work. Collaborators include: Bethany Wells, Chris Thorpe, Fast Familiar, Lizzie Klotz, Maria Crocker, Melanie Wilson, Paula Varjack, RashDash, Selina Thompson, Tanuja Amarasuriya, and Unfolding Theatre.
Her artistic vision is to create work that is softly fierce and fiercely soft. In process and final design, her practice revolves around the creation of community, holding space for conversation, humour and play. She makes work that is accessibly experimental in form; and in content explores, plays with, and questions the messy, confusing bits of being alive. Her work is rooted in intersectional feminism. It is for the adventurous, and also the shy. It is for those who are curious, believe in exploration, and anyone looking for a safe space to explore difficult topics.
She also makes public art, dance theatre, short film and sound art. Her processes are rooted in spaces of listening where collaborators, participants and audiences are willing to be changed by what they hear.
