The Guerilla Dance Project
The Guerilla Dance Project (GDP) embraces social interaction: finding the dances in everyday life. The GDP have performed at The Place, the V&A, National Theatre, in Zagreb, Latitude Festival and across London. It combines the forces of Laura Kriefman (choreographer), Tim Bamber (composer) and Robin Ray (interactive experience designer).
Through dance, music, pervasive gaming and technology the GDP explores the layers of physical engagement we have with our environments.
“Kriefman economically evokes the minuet of hypocrisy and repression, into which the two couples are locked.” Sam Marlowe, The Times.
“seamless connection between the live performance and the external city”. Graham Watts, Ballet.co.uk
“Kriefman is most inventive in her dances for confined spaces, scrums and crowds.” Zoe Anderson, The Independent.
