Daisy began her training at Northern School of Contemporary Dance, graduating with a BPA(Hons) in Contemporary Dance. She then joined Transitions Dance Company and toured internationally works by Lauri Stallings, Tom Dale and Augusto Corrieri. During her time with Transitions, Daisy studied for an MA in Dance Performance. Her thesis was entitled ‘Non-Verbal Communication in Dance Performance’ and this research has become the underpinning for her practice.

In 2013, Daisy established Daisy Farris Dance Collective and began making work for theatre spaces. Her first two works were performed at a number of platforms and festivals throughout the UK. In 2015 Daisy was commissioned by Medway Council to create work as part of the IN-SITE Project. It was through the IN-SITE project that Daisy became interested in site-specific work and began experimenting with dance for film.

Moving forward Daisy is interested in further investigating site-specific choreography and dance for film.
