Katrina McPherson Katrina McPherson - Perceptions of Memory


Following on from their successful screen dance collaboration we record ourselves (2016), screen dance artist Katrina McPherson will be working with Simon Ellis, dance artist and Senior Research Fellow at CDaRE/Coventry University, and Edinburgh dance artist and film-maker Natalia Barua. 

The focus of their practice-based research will be themes of memory and archival practices, including the relationship between what is remembered and what is documented, whether that is through captured images, or the written or spoken word.

The culmination of their residency will be the creation and public presentation of a live performance installation, which sets out to investigate fresh and effective ways in which to engage audiences with movement-based screen work.
