The Jerwood Residencies 2016 support the creation of new work and new ways of working by Scottish artists working collaboratively. Generously funded by the Jerwood charitable trust since 2002, four residencies of two weeks each focus on research and experiment rather than development of a specific project and take place within the interdisciplinary setting of Cove Park.
Simone Kenyon (Dance maker), Margaret Kerr (Eco-Psychologist) and Laura Bradshaw (Somatic practitioner) will develop their collaboration through practical exploration and focused dialogue. They will collectively consider how each of their disciplines and combined interests regarding women’s relationships to environments and facilitating embodied experiences, can develop into performance making in relation to mountainous areas of Scotland. Luke Pell ( Maker+ Curator) will facilitate conversation to conclude the residency period, offering perspective on the collaborative developments and the wider contexts of this work.
