Alex Harrison is a Phd Candidate in the School of Art. She is a trained anthropologist who has never practiced. She is an untrained performer, dramaturg and director who has practiced for 22 years. She is also a mother – definitely untrained. She used to listen to her feet when she danced and probably still does. This has its limits as well as advantages.
She has made visible lots of devised physical theatre, dance and performance. She has created, choreographed and served as dramaturg for producers such as Sydney Opera House, Carriageworks and Dancehouse, companies such as Legs on the Wall, Brown Cab Productions, Nigel Jamieson, Branch Nebula, A Good Catch and the National Theatre of Scotland and festivals such as Dance Massive, Nottdance Festival UK and many other arts festivals across Australia, Canada, Asia and Europe. From solo, full-length work to large scale international collaborations these strange and special treasures disappear into glimpses, as all performance does.
