Freya’s versatility has enabled her to work with a wide range of ballet and contemporary companies on large and small-scale productions, including art installations, aerial dance, dance for film, video game modeling, explorative projects with individual artists and music videos.
Freya started working with Yorke Dance Project in Autumn 2015 and has appeared in all their touring programmes since that time. During her time with the company she has performed works by Robert Cohan, Kenneth MacMillan, Charlotte Edmonds, Sophia Stoller and Yolande Yorke-Edgell. Alongside touring she also takes part in Cohan Collective, which mentors composers and choreographers to work together collaboratively. The initiative is overseen by Robert Cohan and Eleanor Alberga, with other mentors on board for both disciplines.
The company were invited to perform ’Sea of Troubles’ at the Royal Opera House as part of the Kenneth Macmillan Celebrations in 2017 and returned to present his work ‘Playground' in 2019. 'Sea of Troubles' will be performed at The Linbury (ROH) as part of the Heritage programme in May 2020.
The 2019 tour ‘TWENTY’ was a celebration of 20 years of Yorke Dance Project, which included MacMillan’s ‘Playground’ and Sir Robert Cohan’s new work ‘Communion’.
