A Linear Language

A residency at the Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre supported by Arts Council Wales International. This project aims to examine the edges between drawing and movement, approached through exploration of scores and research in dance notation and instructional drawing. The project has begun remotely with in-person activities at the Uillinn in summer 2022.

This project will include collaborative work with aerialist and artist Emily Aoibheann (IRE) which will begin remotely from January 2022 and build on previous work with musicians. 


Both artists have historically traversed lines between disciplines to expand the boundaries of drawing and aerial dance respectively. Through creative exchange ranging from dialogue to shared studio practice, this collaboration will explore drawing as instruction for movement, and vice-versa, as the artists move between instruction and interpretation, closing the space between composer and performer.


The collaboration will focus on discursive, methodological and artistic cross-pollination to research, unpick and test ideas remotely over a six-month period, concluding with in-person consolidation of research at the Uilinn in August 2022. Details of public engagement and sharing to be announced.
