‘Findhorn Community with Deborah Hay’
Evangelia Kolyra travelled to Findhorn, Scotland to participate in a research week with US choreographer Deborah Hay.
“Working with Deborah Hay is almost like having an insight of the history of the generations of dance she went through. Since there are a lot written about Hay’s work, I would like to use this report only to offer my personal response to working with her.”
“The trip was an excellent opportunity to broaden my horizons both professionally and personally by meeting, dancing and spending time with a number of dance practitioners of varied international background and experience. Being in the studio with experienced performers informed my movement and helped me to understand the full potential of this practice.”

‘Professional Development in Tokyo, Japan’
Hakan Redjep travelled to Japan to undertake a self-directed programme of professional development in collaboration with Minori Nagai, MUSE dance company and Tokyo and Seiko Universities.
“As a London-based dance practitioner, I often find myself navigating the tricky terrain which exists between being a freelance choreographer, community artist and visiting lecturer at several dance institutions. In order to better supplement this cyclic, UK-centric work format, I regularly look to international projects to add momentum, substance and perspective to my broad-ranging research interests and studio-based practices.”
