Project Description

LAURA KRIEFMAN

CHOREOGRAPHER AND CREATIVE TECHNOLOGIST

Laura Kriefman is an award-winning choreographer. Her work, the Guerilla Dance Project, uses the creation of installations and beyond scale shows, to achieve an unusual goal: help restore the contact between the body and the environment through the fusion of movement and technology.

With her performances, Laura manages to change the way in which to observe our surroundings and release our new and unexplored sense of movement.

Laura has worked with a number of scientists to carry out various interactive dance spaces, using quantum mechanical technologies as well as sensory systems networks. For her project Crane Dance, launched in Bristol and scheduled in London in the spring of 2016, she has designed a synchronized dance using all industrial cranes that will be part of a movement that will change the skyline of the entire city.

Laura has been appointed by WIRED magazine in 2015 as Space Creative Fellow and is a member of the Clore Leadership Programme 2011-2012. The work of the Guerilla Dance Project was seen at the National Theatre, South Bank Centre, Barbican, Arnolfini, Imperial War Museum North, Theatre Royal Bath, and is part of the Cultural Olympics. Laura’s work has been cited by the Arts Council UK as the best contemporary example of Art & Science Collaboration.
