Charles works within the dance and theatre communities as an independent artist, collaborator and performer. Through his practice in these varied artistic disciplines he has created works and performed with The Farm, Legs on the Wall, Queensland Ballet, Expressions Dance Company, Opera Australia, Red Leap Theatre, Prying Eye, Transit Dance Company, Melissa Lanham, Seeing Place, and Nick Cave.
Charles is also interested in creating works which draw from multiple disciplines. His first collaborative project, 'Farthest Distance' , utilised long-distance communication methods and audience participation to create an interstate, interactive performance, and was featured at Supercell Dance Festival 2018. Charles was also the recipient of Mad Dance House's inaugural Rise Up Grant which enabled him to begin the creation of a contemporary / street dance performance examining perceptions of men and masculinity in relation to dance.
