Amy Lawrence is an artist and choreographer whose multi-disciplinary practice encompasses site-specific performance and choreographed intervention concerning the physicality of space and the body. Amy creates live and recorded work within collaborative scenarios using forms of interaction with a knowing and unknowing audience.
An early student film of Amy's entitled Table Manners was selected for Video Jam 2 at Antwerp Mansion in Manchester, accompanied live by an original spoken word piece by Sally Leitch-Devlin a.k.a Sally Paradise. It caused quite a stir. Since then Amy has remained a friend of Video Jam, and in early 2015 was commissioned to produce a new audio-visual piece entitled WHAT it's not/and then SOME in collaboration with composer David McLean for a special Video Jam event to mark the re-launch of the Whitworth Art Gallery (14/02/15). The film contained images sourced from the North West Film Archive, kindly loaned by Manchester City Library.
