Sworn and Kruithof are working on a dance performance for GI 2018. Through opening their respective research interests and working methods to each other neither is the direcotr, rather they are trying to build a dance performance for the gallery diologically or conversationally. During this session they will make available these processes and explore movement in response to the gallery space.

Corin Sworn is an artist based in Glasgow. Taking a broad ranging approach to research, she brings various themes from history, economics, culture and politics into close association, from which she begins to write 'scripts'. Sometimes these scripts are used for dialogue between characters in a film or to annunciate different mediums sued in sculptural installations in a gallery space. Over the past year she has been working with contemporary dancers to explore the processes of making collaborative 'scripts' or 'scores' as a form of choreography that folds together physical processes and gestures of domestic and work tasks. She is currently working with Claricia Kruithof on the development of a choreographed performance.

Claricia Kruithof is a Dutch-Indonesian movement artist based in Edinburgh, working across performance, choreography and producing. Interested in exploring connections and spaces between diverse cultures and movement practices, her emerging artistic practice draws on traditional, contemporary, street dance and ballroom (vogue) cultures. Current solo research project, the sky was pink, considers the notion of our bodies as archive; preserving learned and inherited movement languages, experiences held in physical memory, and a malleable, evolving identity. The research focuses on developing improvisational scores, exploring relationships with imagery, and developing dialogues between movement and sound.
