Alice Gale-Feeny

About

I am an artist working across performance, dance, facilitation, video and writing. In the work I make, I'm interested in using emergent and improvised methods to examine the multiplicity of experience, and consider how live events may be framed and navigated. 

I draw from anatomy and somatics as well as dialogue-based practices, linguistics and phenomenology, to consider how perceptions and boundaries between bodies and spaces are differently understood. Directly informed by these methods, my approach to pedagogy is one in which I address difference, striving to support an anti-racist, inclusive and accessible space.

I am a Leverhulme Arts Scholar and Gill Clarke Bursary recipient, currently completing an MFA in Creative Practice: Dance Professional Practice at Trinity Laban, in association with Independent Dance. 

Solo exhibitions include: Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2017), Nottingham Castle and Museum (2016-17), Space One, Seoul (2015) and Two Queens, Leicester (2014). Selected performances include: APT Gallery (2019); Hardwick Gallery Cheltenham (2018); New Art Gallery Walsall (2017); Béton Caverne, Brittany (2017); Minoterie 21, Brittany (2017). 

The late-physicist David Bohm's writing 'On Dialogue' informs a facilitation practice in which I organise public conversation events using a 'fishbowl conversation' format. Previous events include: 'How to Arrange Ourselves', part of the 'Communal Lunch' series initiated by Kathrin Böhm at Mansions of the Future, Lincoln (2019); 'Collectivism', co-curated with Olivia Punnett, Haarlem Artspace, Wirkswirth (2019); 'In Circles, Around Tables', Royal Academy of Arts, London, part of 'Dissections' (2018); '2-Way Street', Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2017). 

I am currently working alongside Laura Colomban, Michaela Gerussi, Julia Pond and Adianna Apodaca on the podcast Dance Outside Dance.
