Gail graduated from Laban Centre for Movement and Dance in 1997. As a performer she worked for companies such as Nigel Charnock, Athina Vahla and Ersatz. In 2000 she set up her own company Modusforum and began creating performance based installations which combined movement, sound and spatial design. This interest in creating multi-artform works led her to pursue an MA in Scenography at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. This gave her further understanding of the potential of specialized spacial design and its relationship with performance.
From here, she began to work in the commercial music scene, creating large-scale promenade installations and live events for the music industry. However, in 2002, frustrated by the transient nature of live performance she decided to move into working in film and created The Fall of Adam. Her second film; Johnny Dog-Ear was the beginning of her interest in working in close collaboration with other artists, with scientists and practitioners focusing on issues relating to mental health.
In 2009 she moved to Scotland. Her work since then has been strongly influenced by further study into mental health issues, particularly trauma. Paula, Lorraine, Shelly and Caroline (2010), is a multi screened dance installation work inspired by a research into physiological effects of trauma, and Darkness (2010), a live installation based on nyctophobia (fear of the dark), which premiered at The Center for Contemporary Art in Glasgow.
Most recently Gail has worked in collaboration with Claire Cunningham and the National Theatre of Scotland as Co-director and Video Designer to create the large-scale multi-artform work Menage a Trois. She also worked again with Cunningham as mentor and Co-Director on the work ‘12’ for Candoco Dance Company. Both works were Unlimited Commissions for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Currently Gail is working on a PhD at the University of West of Scotland where she also works as a guest lecturer in Creative Media Practice. She also continues to combine and inform her artistic practice with work as a Pilates instructor.
