Alice Gale-Feeny

Lecturer, Fine Art

Alice is an artist working across performance, dance, facilitation, video and writing. She is interested in emergent methodologies that arise from embodied experience, live events and being in conversation.

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

She is currently developing a series of texts and performance practices that build upon one another in a recursive process, considering notions of middle ground. By weaving emotional content, formal experiments involving objects, live and pre-recorded dialogues with the self and other(s) and anatomical investigations, embodied experiences bump up against conceptual and theatrical ideas.
