Guerrilla dances (live performance)

Liz Aggiss

Research output: Other contribution


'Guerrilla Dances' is a series of live solo performance interventions and part of an ongoing research project that includes a book publication. Developing a repertoire of short intervention dance pieces, 'Guerrilla Dances' reconstructs and researches archive choreography to present both fact and fiction into coherent sequence of vignettes that tag any performance, like a Banksy of the dance-world, and anarchically cuckoo other practitioners stage space. Produced with a £5,000 ACESE production award, this performance project sustains profile and practice as an independent mature artist whilst continuing to develop work beyond the conventional parameters of dance presentation.
