25 - 29 April

This short residency is a personal, and local, research warm up to collect, write and prepare physical vocabulary and content prior to Knights of the Invisibles new creation and co-productions in theatres throughout in Europe in 2022.

It will be a period of training and experiment focusing on the body as a place of possibility, history, complexity and metamorphosis.

An ongoing investigation of movement in detail and choreographic layers that will focus on elements relating to the present work.

Immersing myself in a continued study of idiosyncratic methods and techniques that transform movement through the emotional physical language of life to the deliverance of the imagination in dance.

A realist and surrealist vision. Utilising the voice, visual art theories and improvisation to form content.

Working as a journey of interconnected life and death, a viscerally present and yet, deeply ancient sense of being.

I will be investigating anatomical distortion of shape and form through energy, ritual, visualisation and the nervous system, leading to transformation of emotional states of being.

KNIGHTS OF THE INVISIBLE. 'Waiting for the Sea Eagle'. World premiere in Lyon, France. November 10th, 11th and 12th. Austrian premiere in Vienna 24th, 25th November. Continuing throughout 2023.
