As a producer, Laura supports artists working across dance, live art and contemporary performance as well as work that is multidisciplinary or sits at the intersections of different forms. Laura is particularly interested in accessible, care filled and sustainable approaches to producing and collaborating with artists. They work as an independent freelance producer and together with their long term collaborator Caitlin Fairlie, under the collective name POWERHAUS.

POWERHAUS support emerging or early career artists (recognising that artists have many different routes into professional practice and that early career artists can be of any age) through producing events and offering artist support. POWERHAUS prioritise artists who identify as female, femxle, femme, non binary or other gender identities which are currently underrepresented or experience marginalisation.

In 2019 POWERHAUS were selected for the Emerging Pr
oducers Development Programme with Edinburgh Fringe. Laura was a recipient of a Federation of Scottish Theatre Producer Bursary between Dec 2019 and May 2020, supporting a placement with The Work Room, developing an artist led model for a dance scratch event. Laura currently works for The Work Room on a freelance, part time basis.
