Education

Education plays an integral role in Harriet Macauley investigation and research, to better understand the complex depths and varied articulations within the development of choreographic ideas with technology, studio based techniques i.e. Ballet, Modern, Jazz and Contemporary dance. Her view is to gain an illumination on the intricacy and articulations of movement forms with technology. HM is interested in a dynamic practice-led enquiry and is keen to research philosophical investigations centred around the act of identifying with ‘the Self’ and understanding the role of technology in creative practice. She attends to the experience of philosophy and technology, the body and international collaboration as agents and leans towards understanding practice/creativity as a lived experience. Her mode of navigation is impelled through a window of ideas with identity, movement and multimedia and is concerned with interpersonal, relational dynamics and a recognising of transferable skills between collaborators.
