About the artist
Greta Heath is a screen dance artist and contemporary dancer based in Newcastle who has recently graduated from Newcastle College with a BA in Creative Enterprise. The interest of her work lies in the concept of art as a therapeutic tool.
‘I am interested in exploring dance through the lens of human ecology and learning about how changes in our environments affects us somatically.’
About the work
Greta will be creating a screen dance film, with movement influenced by and set in locations where industry meets the natural world. It would address the domestic and large-scale use of natural resources including where it is extracted or created. The new piece (as yet untitled) will explore the contrast between urban/domestic settings and the often-rural landscape where the extraction takes place. Through movement Greta intends to trace the journey of how natural products transpose from a raw to a refined resource.
