Matt has spent 15 years weaving threads between a professional practice of movement, meditation, dance, acrobatics and yoga. In 2015 he created BODY ROOTS as a vehicle to share his perspective on physical practice.
Training chinese martial arts since his teenage years Matt followed a full-time professional training in acrobatics (Circomedia Circus School, UK) and later conservatoire training in contemporary dance (Northern School of Contemporary Dance, UK) before embarking on a touring career as a performer and teacher. One primary focus has been an exploration of dance-acrobatics with Tom Weksler, collaborating for some years on Tom's 'Zen Acrobatics' through movement archery.
Matt lives with his partner in Manchester, Northern England, and continues to teach worldwide.
Matt's events have been hosted across the world including workshops in Tanshaus Zurich (Switzerland), Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance (Israel), Yizong Bagua Deustchland Cologne (Germany), Tripspace London (UK), Bewegungspielraum Berlin (Germany), Rumah Yoga (Amsterdam), Cafe Move Cork (Ireland) and Move Intensive Festival (Portugal).
