ABOUT COLETTE SADLER AND STAMMER PRODUCTIONS
Colette Sadler is a Scottish choreographer and multi-disciplinary artist. Since 2007 her work has been presented nationally and internationally in theatre and museum contexts including Tanz im August Berlin, Tokyo Festival, Theatre De Liege, Tramway Glasgow, Kaai Theatre Brussels, SouthBank Centre London, Impulstanz Vienna, Nottingham Contemporary, Les Lattitudes Contemporains France and OGR Turin Italy. In 2022 Colette Sadler presented her first solo exhibition "ARK 1 - Towards a Future Archaeology" at Nordic House Reykjavik Iceland as part of Goethe*Morph Iceland. Trained in ballet and contemporary dance, Sadler's work operates at the intersection of performance, dance, sculpture and digital art. Her interdisciplinary performances often explore the relationship between the human and the non-human, as well as the relationship between real and virtual spaces. In her performances, she stages bodies and identities in moments of transformation, using fiction and prosthetics to create transitions between real and virtual realms. Her 2022 work "Oracle Leaves- Portraits of Daphne" was presented and co-produced by Tramway. In 2024 she will collaborate with multi-media composer Alexander Schubert on a new performance work "Extra Life". Her upcoming work "Book of Songs" is co-produced by HAU (Hebbel Am Ufer) Berlin and Tanzhaus NRW. Since 2016 she is the curator of the multi-disciplinary art festival "Present Futures" based at CCA (Centre of Contemporary Arts Glasgow, UK).
Feral are a Glasgow based arts producing house founded in 2015 by Jill Smith and Kathryn Boyle. The duo have a specific interest in developing artists pushing the boundaries of their practice through multi-artform experimentation. Together they produce a portfolio of artists, tour work locally and internationally, organise festivals and develop creative residencies as a way of supporting a diverse community of independent artists working across contemporary performance, physical theatre, dance and the outdoor arts.
