Tara is an independent artist-practitioner, working in the fields of dance, choreography, education and bodywork. She graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance with MA through Transitions Dance Company in 2009. Since then, collaborations have been fundamental to her practice.
Areas of interest and investigation currently reside in relational practice as choreography. 'Slowing things down' in order to sensitise to subtleties of phenomena and, as a consequence, re-imagine and engage with a process of redefining audience/performer/choreography relations. Tara enjoys expanding her own definitions of dance, experimenting with whatever mediums feel appropriate. Her works form as detailed, intimate performances that seek to bring a felt awareness to the whole and the unseen.
Tara loves working with people and their bodies. Alongside and in relationship to her artistic work, she facilitates workshops and delivers lectures across community and Higher Education contexts. She continues to re-find and re-imagine her body as a site of enquiry, and looks to enable this in others.
Tara is a registered Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist practising in Bristol, where she lives. This hands-on approach leaves her continually amazed at the luminous intelligence and creativity of the body. She is currently studying Tai Chi (Taiji Quan) and Chi Gong with teacher Samuel Hallett.
