We are a company comprising three artists who met while completing our graduate Performance Making degrees at Goldsmiths, University of London. We devised and performed drip as our dissertation project. It was written collaboratively, with each of us contributing to every aspect of the performance. Through this process we hoped to develop a work that wove together our different artistic backgrounds without prioritizing any one framework.
Ye Yuyi’s background is in architecture and urban design. Her work has focused especially on the relationship between village development and behavioral and spiritual beliefs. Recently, she has explored the connections between architecture, performance, and the body. She has done projects in different modes, including architecture, mixed media and installation. She received her undergraduate degree from the China Academy of Art.
Leo Hardman-Hill is a multi-instrumentalist and theatre maker with a degree in Contemporary Improvisation from the New England Conservatory. His work explores the “performative in music” and the “musical in performance,” with a particular focus on rhythm and signification. He has written several pieces of music for mixed-size ensembles as well as various pieces of “composed theatre,” which he self-produced in New York.
Nina Rebeiz’s background is in set design and construction. Her work frequently involves constructing multi-purpose set pieces out of recycled and repurposed waste. Recently, she collaborated on a site-specific performance art piece entitled Hamletine, which took place at the V&A. In addition to her practice, she has spent several years organizing and running artistic workshops for children.
