Holly Craig is an emerging Sydney-based dancer, performing artist and maker living with vision impairment. She is committed to creating and performing work which is place based, experiments with structure and form, and examines lived histories from diverse individuals and communities.
In 2017, Holly began developing her practice by being an active member of Shopfronts’ Harness Ensemble, before collaborating with Sarah Houbolt, Kristina Chan and Adelina Larson on practice-based research exploring how vision impaired people learn dance. Since this time, she has engaged in masterclasses with Amrita Hepi, Sarah-Vyne Vassallo, Vicky Malin, and Marrugeku; and has thrice participated in DirtyFeets’ Choreographic lab program; working with Elle Evangelista, Emily Flannery and Gabriela Green-Olea.
In 2018-2019, Holly engaged in residencies at PYT Fairfield and Abbotsford Convent, and intensives with Linda Luke, Elle Evangelista, Caroline Bowditch and Luke Pell. She was also a part of Constant Relay at ReadyMade works. Her credits include the award-winning “Dignity of Risk” (ATYP, 2017), “Do-Ability Divas” (Sydney Fringe Festival, 2018), “Behind the Scenes” (Shopfront Arts, 2019), “The Expert” (Crack Festival, 2019), and work in development “Mobility Geometries” (Abbotsford Convent, 2019).
