JULY 15 SATURDAY
Dance at Clear Air Turbulence and Tannhauser // 2.30pm & 8pm
Nicola Collie’s artistic practice often begins with filmed improvisation prior to setting choreography with the aim of eliciting direct emotional and physical response to a site-specific environment. Nicola references the more subtle movement of the human form through manipulating pedestrian movement to challenge how the physical body is considered.
Nicola Collie is a New Zealand born dance artist based between Brooklyn, New York and Los Angeles. Check out a compilation of her dance performances in 2017 here.

Clash magazine describes them as ‘a formative part of the Los Angeles underground, a group whose noise-driven approach fuses the more groundbreaking elements of cold wave and post-punk with a deeply modern sense of the visceral.’ On a side note, Brady is also one of our treasured team members at The 14th Factory!
