Holly Craig is a Queer Blind dance artist and maker. Holly creates movement based experiences which agitate societal notions of agency, identity, belonging and community through exploring diverse personal narratives.

Drawing from their lived history of Blindness, Holly utilises creative Audio Description, written texts, and non-verbal bodily and atmospheric sounds, to convert visual movement based material into collective actions for audiences to embody, visualise and listen to. At present, Holly is interested in experimenting with ways that choreography and  navigation of physical space can be translated and communicated through non-verbal bodily sounds and sound making objects or costuming. Holly has recently begun investigating this research area through a funded March Dance 2021 residency; collaboratively exploring the systemised coding of sound to allow for non-sighted orientation in space and communication within group improvisation. 

Other notable artistic experiences include Holly collaborating with Fayen D’Evie, choreographing a score for translation  into sculptural works for Fayen’s ‘With Cane In Hand, A Dance; For 1, For 2, For 3, For 4’ (MCA Bella Room Commission, 2020-22), performing in the 2020 Keir choreographic Awards in Riana Head Toussaint’s ‘Very Excellent Disabled Dancing’ (Dancehouse 2020), creating the improvisational movement conversation text ‘Imprints On The Unseeable Space’ for Fayen D’Evie’s ‘We Get In Touch With Things At The Point They Break Down // Even In the Absence Of Audiences and Spectators, Dust Circulates’ (West Space Gallery, 2021), and collaborating with Gabriela Green Olea and Imogen Yang to develop digital participatory dance work ‘Mystery Call’, curated as part of Live Dreams Moshi Moshi?!; Liveworks Festival 2021.
