Monday 14-Friday 25 February
“Neurodiversity and the Performer” is a two week Research and Development project by performers Jennifer Steele and Conall Ross. With a firm belief that Neurodiversities such as ADHD and Autism can enhance creative potential, the duo will use their residency to investigate several key questions: 1. Can performative dance be an expression of Stimming? 2. How does seeking/receiving a diagnosis affect young artists? 3. Can Neurodiversity be used as a tool in the artistic process? 4. How can collaboration between music, dance and theatre reflect a diversity of thought and experience? Our goal at the end of this residency is to better understand the interactions between Neurodiverse artists and the artistic process, with an aim to develop an inclusive toolbox of creative techniques for all artists to use.
