Christina Liddell is an independent dance artist based in Scotland. Upon graduation with a First Class BA Honours in 2012, Christina was awarded the Dancer’s Emerging Bursary Scheme through Dance Base, under the mentorship of Alan Greig. Christina has performed within works by Angus Balbernie, Janis Claxton, Christine Devaney, Roisin O’Brien, Henri Oguike, William Thorburn and Pirita Tuisku. Her career has specialised in a dual combination of performance and outreach teaching work.
As an artist and maker, she looks to craft her artistry within a fusion of multi-sensory art forms, to share compelling messages with the wider audience. She is passionate that the work she delivers is greatly steered as a response of the individuals she comes alongside, expanding horizons of possibilities and embracing diversity within freedom of expression.
Christina’s creative vision to work with an array of impulses and exploration, aspires to move above and beyond her work as a practioner. She purposes her performative qualities to unveil integrity, grace and versatility, acting as a vessel to carry infinite depths of meaning and power.
As a direct response of Christina working with many inspiring children at the Edinburgh Royal Sick Children’s Hospital, the vision of creating an immersive interactive dance theatre piece “Glimpsing Air Pockets” has been sparked.
