Ashleigh Musk

“During the Bath St Residency I will be continuing to work with practice-based movement research exploring the body in relation to architecture, the built environment and urban design concepts. I will also be researching and laying the foundations for a new work – which is something to do with the ideas of legacy, permanence and the precarious moment in which the world finds itself.” Ashleigh Musk

Ashleigh will undertake her residency from the 15th-26th of February.

Ashleigh (she/her) is a dancer, choreographer, producer and community arts facilitator. She uses the body as the central tool for creation, alongside text, object and space, creating works that balance darkness and fear with light, hope and reflection. Ashleigh uses movement as a vehicle to spark empowerment, celebration and change, encouraging active witnessing by audiences and participants.

In 2020, Ashleigh was a performer with GUTS Dance (Mpartnwe, Arrernte Country) for the regional Australian tour of The Perception Experiment and the Darwin Festival presentation of Dance: A Short Homage. She has been a choreographic collaborator for their large-scale education project Alice Can Dance since 2018. She regularly performs in the work of other artists including Liesel Zink, Prying Eye (AUS), Companyia AGITART | Roger Fernandez Cifuentes, Grace Euna Kim (BCN), Denada Dance Theatre (Spain/UK), Jamaal Burkmaar Dance for the Matthew Bourne New Adventures Choreographer Award Showcase, James Wilton Dance, Ben Wright and Frauke Requardt (UK).
