Carolyn Roy is a London based dancer, writer and teacher. Her work examines the body meeting with the world through improvising and walking, the material that emerges in this encounter and the compositional potential of somatic practice. She is concerned with attention, perception, and relationships. A particular interest is the spoken word in a dance context and the multiple understandings that are generated. In addition to her own projects she has performed with Gaby Agis, Pacitti Company, Graeme Miller, Tino Sehgal, Florence Peake, and Lizzy Le Quesne, and is currently adapting to the role of PhD practitioner and researcher at Roehampton University.
