DONNA RUTHERFORD has been working in the realm of art performance as a writer, performer, director & video maker since 1990. Working on solo and collaborative projects in the UK and abroad with a wide range of artists, musicians and community-based participants. Her work deals with versions of personal storytelling. Increasingly commissioned work develops through open invites to contributors, as Rutherford’s faith in people’s stories is so strong. Essentially her work looks at how people deal with, and don’t deal with things in their life - when they are pushed to extremes, or the side effects of avoidance.
