Co.lab is a multi-artform improvisation practice fostering collaboration with diverse artists and informing ADP’s broader interdisciplinary creative approach.
A playground for possibility, Co.lab forges experimental languages between dance, music/sound, visual art/projection and poetry/spoken word. The lab embraces artistic impulse, instantaneous composition and journey into wild immersions and develops collaborative relationships with artists outside of our dance and body-centred networks.
Co.lab explorations have led to new and longstanding collaborative relationships and working methods developed with musician, Alex Voorhoeve and Poet, Melinda Smith, which has featured in ADP’s major works.
Dancers: Alison Plevey, Sara Black, Ashlee Bye, Patricia Hayes Cavanagh, Ryan Douglas Stone, Emma Laverty, Levente Szabo and Olivia Wikner.
Musicians: Alex Voorhoeve, Ruth O’Brien and Liam Budge.
Poetry: Melinda Smith
Visual Art: Nicci Haynes
