The choreographer Siriol Joyner is in residence at Köttinspektionen in January and February, and on the 3rd of February she is inviting to an open workshop which she will host together with Alice MacKenzie. The workshop is open for dancers and non-dancers who is interested in experimenting with movements.
Siriol Joyner is an artist working within the field of dance and choreography. She is obsessed with language and its relationship to dance and dancing and the material and political implications of this connection. She is creating movement, text and object works that focus upon the notions of mutation, translation and code-switching. Her interests are informed by her Welsh identity and the minority status of her mother tongue, Cymraeg (Welsh). An interest in site and site specificity is always present in Siriol’s work. In 2021 her solo piece “Listening to-“ was presented by Cullberg, the national and international repertoire contemporary dance company in Sweden and she is currently making a new group work that begins from asking ‘what is a site specific dance?’; ‘what is the dance of this place?’ She holds an MFA in Choreography from Stockholm University of the Arts and a post-graduate qualification from the Royal Academy of Art Stockholm. As well as making her own work, Siriol performs with/for artists such as Mette Edvardsen, Hana Erdman, Ruarí Donovan, Dora Garcia and Alice Mackenzie.
