Dance artist and maker Holly Craig, for their 2022 Critical Path Research Residency will work with collaborators Imogen Yang, Annalouise Paul, Romain Hassanin, and Gabriela Green Olea. Holly will continue to explore sound-based languages which support non-sighted navigation of space whilst dancing and communication between collaborators when improvising and/or sharing individual movement languages.
During their research residency Holly will continue the collaborative development of these non-sighted sound-based practice methods, as a means of deeply investigating their potential to:
- Create space for safe and authentic artistic expression and collaboration;
- Foster and strengthen creative connections founded upon trust and reciprocity; and
- Open space for respectful cross-cultural exchange and learning, particularly in relation to the sharing of lived histories related to individual dance practices/movement languages.
