Amy, Reetta and Romy (EF 24)
30cm x 22cm
Idea for a canvas, and first attempt at pulling together a composition with three dancers working remotely – Reetta Riikonen in Finland, and Amy Becke and Romy Adair in the UK.
Having worked intensively together on Ballet Cymru’s 2019/20 Pre-Professionals Programme, the three dancers are now collaborating via shared video as they support me in developing new approaches to my work – in this case, beginning with choreography by Reetta, and responded to by Amy and Romy.
As I return to painting after something of a hiatus, I’m very excited about new creative processes I’m beginning to explore with several groups of dancers, and can see the potential for these partnerships to be taken in directions we may not otherwise have thought of.
