My Latest Projects

Venus & Adonis | New Renaissance Collective 

In 2019, Celia worked closely as an Associate Artist with The New Renaissance Collective.

Throughout the year, through a series of Company Rehearsals, they took Shakespeare's epic poem, "Venus & Adonis", and devised a 1-hour, fast paced, high octane performance, combining movement, text and music by Monteverdi. 

In the production at Bussey Building in December, Celia played the title role of Venus.
