The 2017 call out for this residency has now past, the selected artist is Julia McGhee, a choregrapher, performer and teacher based in Easter Ross. Julia applied to have some time and support to develop a project called Interactive Experiments, an interactive performance in collaboration with a group of young people who have autism and learning disabilities. You can read more about this production in the project blog.
"My principle interest in this residency would be the opportunity to work in the studio intensively for a week with Quee and Robbie on developing the structure of the performance, gathering and reflecting on the material we have acquired through the workshops to date (December 2016 to August/September 2017) and establishing a first draft (or drafts) of the ‘Interactive Experiments’ performance. I am keeping an open mind as to the format of the performance – and there may be more than one – whether it be live performance involving music, dance and elements of projected film, or an installation that allows the audience to visit and leave as and when they wish, or a documentary film or a CD capturing the soundtrack over the course of the project." Julia McGhee
The artistic team for this residency is Julia McGhee, Quee McArthur and Robbie Synge, Julia is also currently being supported by a Janice Parker Projects Dance Artist Bursary/Saltire Society Award.
