Tanja Erhart

Tanja Erhart is a self-identified dis-abled, independent dance artist and cultural scientist from Austria living in London.  Her movement practice explores her three different bodies – ‘with my crutches, my wheelchair or without assistive tools.’ During the residency, Tanja and her collaborator Katharina Senk, will develop a new performance for two dancers and two crutches, exploring the topics of dis-ability, the feminist gaze and the aesthetics of access. Working with an invited sound artist, they will explore structured improvisations in movement and sound based on the characteristics of the crutch – transforming the assistive tools into social connectors, sensual interfaces and animated dance partners.
