Dear Tim and Renate

Thanks for this invite to share bios. I'm new to -empyre-and am  
enjoying quietly lurking and learning from the wonderful discussions.  
Here's a brief bit about my practice -

Sue Hawksley

I am a dance artist and bodywork therapist, currently based in  
Edinburgh, Scotland. I established my company articulate animal in  
2007 as an umbrella for interdisciplinary inquiry focused on the  
moving body. My choreographic practice is concerned primarily with  
movement and issues around identity and territory. I am particularly  
interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative practice, and  
exploring the interstices between forms, cultures, media. Some of my  
performance works engage technological mediation and interactive  
performance environments, such as Bodytext (2010), Blowup (2008),  
Mutsugoto (2009), I am I was (a dying swan) (2000); some emphasise  
language, such as Bodytext (2010), danced process #1 (2008), Passport  
(2006); some highlight collaboration with a composer such as carrier  
(2007) and re-membering(s) (2009). I have had commissions from New  
Media Scotland Alt-W awards; citymoves Aberdeen; Northern School of  
Contemporary Dance and the Dance School of Scotland, and my work has  
been performed at venues including the Mondavi Centre, UC Davis; the  
Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow; the Place, London; Dance Base,  
Edinburgh; Critical Path, Sydney; Inspace, Edinburgh and Peacock  
Visual Arts, Aberdeen.

Trained in classical ballet at the Royal Ballet School, London  
(graduated 1983) I have since worked as a contemporary dance  
performer, choreographer and educator. I have performed with Rambert  
Dance Company, Mantis Dance, Scottish Ballet and cie. Philippe Genty  
among others, in works by choreographers including Merce Cunningham,  
Trisha Brown, Siobhan Davies, Richard Alston, Ashley Page and Michael  
Clark. I have been practicing as a massage and bodywork therapist  
since 1991, and somatic approaches deeply inform all aspects of my  
work. I hold a PhD from the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh College  
of Art (awarded 2012). My research critically examines concepts of  
embodiment through choreographic and somatic practices, philosophy,  
and mediation.

Current practice and research includes solo performance work engaging  
touch as a choreographic medium, and a collaborative project  
developing an interactive performance installation environment  
employing 3D tracking of performers with multi-source voice  
recognition for speech to text, and a multi-channel data driven sound  
score. I am interested in the phenomenal experience of performing  
within such complex interactive and emergent environments, and in  
developing methods to facilitate performers' capacity to cope.

I am currently Senior Lecturer in Dance (Performance and Choreography)  
at the University of Bedfordshire, UK.
