After graduating from Northern School of Contemporary Dance in 2009, Kip has gone onto perform with mainly dance theatre companies such as Protein Dance, Vincent Dance Theatre, Gecko, Ultima Vez and Fevered Sleep.

In 2015 Kip travelled the UK in a motorhome for a year, volunteering on farms and in communities. Since then he has been trying to find ways of bringing dance and nature together. He moved to Bristol in 2016 to start making work, interested in the human relationship to nature and the intersection between human and natural processes.
