Over the last 20 years Simon has located much of his practice in the valley close to his home in Cwm Cych. Through walking in this Valley he collaborates physically in a world of materials and events- making itinerant performance, often fleeting, ephemeral and playful.

He hosts Locator, an ongoing incubator workshop that researches ecological ideas through movement practice, situated in Tycanol, an ancient sessile oak woodland in west Wales. He is currently growing a dance floor with plants and herbs at Plas Glyn y Weddw on the Llyn peninsula, Newground/Tirnewydd will be a place of encounter and touch in a fold of human, plant and wild life.

Simon is also a craniosacral therapist and is currently doing an AHRC funded PhD at Glasgow University; Soft Matter researches the relationships between ecological ideas, touch and movement practice.
