Moving On Resonance Artists

Amy Voris is a contemporary dance-maker based in Manchester. Her practice is process-oriented and collaborative, driven by the desire to develop enduring relationships with people, with places and with movement material. Examples of current projects include a site-responsive project (enter & inhabit), a collaboration with a jewellery maker (flockOmania) and a collaboration exploring artist-led curation for experimental performance practices (Accumulations). In 2012, Amy completed training in Integrative Bodywork and Movement Therapy with Linda Hartley which informs her approach to making and collaborating.
I am a trans-disciplinary artist, performer and choreographer, working with the body, movement, atmospheres, voice and sound. Through sensuousness, humour and solidarity, my practice and work are motivated by a political ecology of things and by a poetic re-enchantment of the world. Following tensions, curiosities and desires, I tend to the vitality and relation of human and more-than-human, as well as to the joy and pleasure of dance as a liberating force. Preoccupied with regeneration on an individual, social and global level, I work with eco-feminism and fictive imagination to deal with the present and create possibilities.
Sara Ruddock is a Swedish artist working with dance and choreography as vibrational and relational practices, as a performer, choreographer and educator/facilitator.
Professionally active in the field of dance and choreography since 2002, creating and performing a number of solo works and collaborative projects with other artists, and dancing with a range of choreographers such as Deborah Hay and Julie Cunningham.
Educated mainly at DOCH/Stockholm University of the Arts [BA, MFA]. Currently a PhD candidate at Roehampton University researching listening as embodied, multi-dimensional and relational practice, and the transformative potentials of resonance and resistance.
I am a multi-instrumentalist musician, composer and curator, known primarily as a drummer in the Contemporary and Klezmer music scenes. I have performed all over the world and feature on several critically acclaimed recordings. I have written, released and performed my own work through Mayday Project, Stories and Land of If. I have staged interdisciplinary arts events as Pop-Up Circus (now Soapbox Circus) and in collaboration with JW3, Dash Arts and Brick Box. I work regularly with Play for Progress, a charity that uses music and creative therapies to build healthy and resilient relationships that support and amplify the voices of unaccompanied refugees and asylum-seekers. I am working on my first theatre solo show, ‘Behind the Beat’ (it’s basically me trying to set up a drum kit on stage plus distractions). I developed this with Haley McGee during a residency at Canada Water Theatre. I have also been learning DIY instrument building with sound artist Leafcutter John. and make radio shows for Faff FM.
