Claire Ridge

Claire Ridge is a choreographer whose practice explores the disruptive potentials of the image. Her practice sits between dance, performance and film, and she negotiates this through a DIY, post-internet aesthetic. In her current project she is exploring the potential of looping in a performance practice. This includes looping as copying, recording, re-mediating and creating technological loops through live feed, recorded film, and bodies in performance.

She asks what might appear through these processes? How might looping operate as mining or excavating images for their alternative meanings or histories?

Whilst in residence Claire will use the time and space for practical research; she will be working with a performer to develop a multi-media performance work, and through this will explore the disruptive potentials of what Claire calls looping-as-glitch in performance.
