studied at the London Contemporary Dance School and SEAD in Salzburg. Since 2015, she has been producing her own works in Vienna in collaboration with Brut, Im_Flieger and Huggy Bears. Her choreographies Function Man, S/M and Welcome to the Fisch-Haus have been invited to various festivals including March Hare Festival, Dance Days Chania, TanzHafen and Imagetanz. She has received scholarships from the Tanzquartier and BKA and writes regularly for Springback Magazine.
During her K3 residency, Claire will continue her research on radical gentleness as a performative practice and as a form of political resistance. She is searching for sensory and tactile experiences as a response to patriarchy's discomfort with all that is soft, vulnerable and emotional – feminine connoted qualities. The aim is to soften solid structures in the body (e.g. after years of dance training) and to set the space as a hyper-sensitive entity in motion.
