Lucy is a South African performing artist based in Vancouver, Cape Town, and the internet. She works in traditional Western-classical, improvised, and performance scenarios centered on interactions with emerging technologies. Collaboration is at the heart of Lucy’s practice and she works regularly with dancers, artists, film-makers and musicians. She is passionate about both creating new music, and supporting new music in her practice as a violist.
After completing her BMus in Composition at the University of Cape Town, Lucy’s exploration of instant-composition was set in motion at the Music Dance Cape Town Performance Residency and Improvisation Summer Course, Amsterdam. She has recently completed a MMus in viola performance under the instruction of Prof. Marina Thibeault at the University of British Columbia, situated on unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Sel̓íl̓witulh Nations.
