As a dance practitioner Kerryn has always been fascinated by the intersections between technology and the live moving body, the juxtaposition of flesh and visceral movement with notions of digital intimacy. Kerryn’s work is interdisciplinary and often draws from visual art, photography and film, frequently working in non-tradition venues and spaces creating alternative performance experiences for audiences, that reshape their spatial and perceptual senses.
Her work has been shown at a range of festivals, theatres and venues nationally including the National Review of Live Art, Sensitive Skin Festival, NEAT, NottDance. Her works include Exposure (2017) a 360 VR and live immersive experience, YES/NO/MAYBE (2018) exploring binary code and human language, Awakenings (2012-16) a surreal intimate performance for two, CLIP (2005) a site-specific work for cinema spaces, and RAIN (2005) an immersive, durational installation. Kerryn’s latest work Dis_place (2019), is an innovative one-to-one site-based VR immersive performance and volumetric VR film documenting heritage narratives through dance.
Kerryn is currently undertaking a practice based PhD exploring the experiential impact of using 360 video within live immersive performance practices and is a QuestLab Network Artist at Studio Wayne McGregor.
