In the run up to WIG IV - ONLINE Eleanor Walker contributed postcards; a combination of visuals and short pieces of text related to improvisation for us to share online. Here they are and below is more about Eleanor.
Eleanor Walker is a recent graduate from the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance and being relatively new to the dance scene in Scotland, she has been particularly drawn to improvisation. Throughout her studies she followed that interest as much as possible, including a research project surrounding habits in improvisation and creating a dance piece using games as part of a live performance. She is a member of Third Thread, an improvisational ensemble based in the practice of “Self with Others”, where in addition to movement, she discovered written text and speech as additional avenues for creativity.
