Dance in Art Galleries

Gerry regularly teaches dance workshops and creates performances in a range of art galleries  

The workshops explore the themes and ideas of the exhibitions. It is an unfolding journey through the artwork, using shape, form, pattern and sequence. Short encounters inside and outside the gallery inform the movement work and performances are shared by participants at the end of the workshop. This is a unique opportunity to invent and perform dance and use improvisation inspired by art. She also creates new works both in response to exhibitions and as installations with visual artists. Please see above for details of any current events.

Quote from Audience member

'Having seen dance in exhibitions before, the dancers often seemed isolated in a specific space and separate from the exhibits. Your dancers however seemed to respond on many level’s to different areas of the gallery space and to physically interact with some of the actual exhibits. This was a success, poetic, dynamic and exciting.'

Recent events have been in Leeds and Lausanne Switzerland, this collaboration between the two cities will continue until 2023.
