The Uncollective is Eve Stainton and Michael Kitchin whose aim is to create experimental movement work which acknowledges contemporary queer politics, whilst projecting to future alternatives. Their practice is driven by the intimacies of collaboration, often using objects & materials to question ‘usefulness’ through movement and liveness. The Uncollective look to engage with and provoke discussion around environments, desire and queer realities.
The Uncollective have presented works at: Tangente Danse Montreal (2017) Royal Academy of Arts (2017/18), Siobhan Davies Dance (2018), Tripspace (2017), Adelaide Fringe (2017) winning ‘Best Dance Commendation’, Inventory and Somerset House in collaboration with Sara Sassanelli for LOW KEY (2017), Guest Projects in collaboration with Sorcha Stott-Strzala (2016), Yorkshire Dance (2016), Paris Fashion Week choreography/direction for Youjia Jin (2016).
