Freya Dooley

Freya works with writing, moving image, sound and performance. Her practice combines literary and pop culture references and humour to create fragmented monologues, dialogues, soundtracks and auto/biographical semi-fictions. Her work frequently refers or returns to anxious states of desire, embarrassment, panic, control and repetition; towards an articulation of the inside turned out. She is interested in the voice as something in-between: internal and external, sound and language, thought and body. Her current research explores the live and recorded voice and de-centralised, intertwining narratives.

She also has a collaborative practice with Cinzia Mutigli. Since 2013, their practice has encompassed performance, broadcast and publication works which combine real events and imagined fictions: constructing characters and embellishing themselves. Their recent performance work ‘Being Sharon’ explores the flattened politics of soap operas and how snobbery, guilt and pleasure nestle alongside each other.
