More Information

The artists will use their time at YSP as a starting point for their research. This is the first time the three artists have collaborated together; they will start the initial stage of their research to unfold the possibilities of this cross art-form collaboration.

The artists plan to develop a new collaborative methodology indoors and in the open air during their time at the Park. The residency will potentially culminate in a free public sharing of work-in-progress. Find out more about the sharing

The artists will subsequently continue their research in residence at Yorkshire Dance in Leeds until the 18 June.

About the artists

Vanessa Grasse is a leeds-based dance artist from Italy. Her projects involve cross art-form collaboration, improvisation and site-specific performance. She is currently studying a MA in Creative Practice at Trinity Laban, London, investigating her interest in urban walking and the relationship with outdoor environments as a base for her practice. Her work ranges from choreographic stage work to installations and site-based promenade work. She also works as a dance lecturer and teaches release technique, contact improvisation and improvisation for wider communities.

Bettina Neuhaus is a dance artist based in Amsterdam and Berlin. Her practice is deeply involved in Instant Composition and cross art-form collaborations as a way of making performative work. She is currently studying a MA in Creative Practice at Trinity Laban, London.

Phill Harding is a West Yorkshire-based artist who works with sound in a primarily visual-arts context. His work is often site specific and always site- and context-responsive taking the form of large-scale installations in which the pre-existent physical architecture is a main aspect of the work. He is interested in the flux of time and people's psychological responses to the places and spaces we inhabit.
