Ros offers an insight into her particular process of making, coming from the practice of performing, and how she works when collaborating with designers and musicians. She speaks about knowing what you’re doing both subjectively and objectively, the voice as part of the moving body, and how it “becomes part of the switched-on-ness.” Influenced by Deborah Hay, she advocates “considering performance as a practice rather than something you prepare for.”
This talk was part of the Crossing Borders 2010, and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School.
