This is the research blog of dancers Eleanor Sikorski, Flora Wellesley Wesley and Stephanie McMann. As the artistic directors of Nora they curate and perform together, inviting choreographers to make work for them to perform.

As of October 2016, Nora have been undertaking a period of international research into creative processes, alternative dance ‘company’ models and the agency and responsibility that comes with curating and collaborating. They will be publishing videos, interviews, text and images. This research will culminate in a series of Nora Talks and a new series of artist commissions in 2017/18.

For information about all of Nora's work and performance dates visit www.noramoves.com

Being an agent in a field

Being an agent in a field

Flora's night-time brainstorm about the (secret?) arts of complaining with style and instrumentalising speculative work.

Don't bin a good idea if you hear back, 'thank you for your application but unfortunately on this occasion...' because it is indeed just one occasion, and you can fashion another; make (art) hay with your peers!
