Vision Statement

My REF research is a continuation of practice-led interdisciplinary collaborative artistic research into deepening understanding of creative process in the field of contemporary dance. Over the last decade, this has included an engagement with a number of artist-initiated research projects working to develop resources published in different formats (from books to websites) with the goal to further understanding of choreographic ideas and processes. Our aim is to foster newly productive relations with both general audiences and other specialist practices and to contribute to an emergent unique body of knowledge pertaining to contemporary dance.
