Alice Labant:

Recipient of the Marion North Award for Outstanding Achievement in Performance and the Excellent Dancer Prize. Alongside working with Mara Vivas and Angela Woodhouse and being part of Medeber Teatro - a visual theatre company- she researches and creates works with dancer and musician Gordon D. Raeburn , the Swallowsfeet Collective. Drawing from several art fields and often in collaboration with other creative professionals , she creates choreographic works that depict with playfulness the discontinuous functioning of the mind. Alice has recently been writing for and recording audio guides featured in Moving On events internationally ( Exit Map) developing a poetic and at core moving language that touches on our ways to engage and perceive ourselves in nature. 

Vanessa Grasse:

Explores the crossover between choreography, walking-art and installation, as a vehicle for somatic experiencing, engaging with public spaces and bringing communities together. She engages in site-responsive, ecological, improvisational, participatory, and cross-disciplinary approaches, with an interest in how we inhabit places and coexist with others, acknowledging our relational and entangled nature with environments, and with human and non-human communities. her work has been commissioned  by Yorkshire Dance, Dance 4, The Great Exhibition of The North, Dance City and Badischer Kunstverein (Germany) amongst others and toured across the UK, Europe and East Asia. Her recent project series The Land We Are was selected for Leeds Dance Partnership Fellowship, Dance Partner Project at Yorkshire Dance and received ACE funding. It offers experiences of ecology and relationship with the more-than-human world via choreographic works, workshops and collaborations between artists and environmental experts.

Vanio Papadelli:

Is a movement and theatre artist based in London and a regular lecturer in Higher Education (Goldsmiths, Rose Bruford College and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance). She teaches movement, devising and embodied approaches to writing inspired by somatic movement and dance, yoga, Eastern European theatre and Contact Improvisation. Her performance work explores memory, vulnerability and candidness in human relationships by fusing autobiography and fiction through movement, sound, video projections, and poetic texts.
