::: Inroducing ::: 21 Artists: London Featured Artists Sarah Louise Kristiansen & Yolanda Mercy
Project Brief: Sarah and Yolanda will be working together and create a collaborative piece, combining poetry with dance.
About Sarah Louise:
Sarah is a choreographer and fitness professional based in London and graduated from Kingston University in 2012 with a BA (Hons) in Arts and Social Sciences: Dance. Sarah specializes in fusing contemporary methodologies with a current movement vocabulary. Essentially she is in love with the human body and believes it is the most powerful tool an artist can work with. Sarah believes that Dance is a powerful art form because of its ability to “say something” without the necessity of words.
Yolanda Mercy is an actress/writer who trained at the Brit School and Laban. She started creating her own work last year, and hasn’t stopped finding ways to “push/identify” her creative voice. Yolanda has showcased work at scratch nights/open mics at venues such as Battersea Arts Centre, The Lyric (Hammersmith) and The Almeida. She has also worked within professional acting productions at The Globe Theatre, Stratford East and Young Vic. Alongside this project Yolanda is writing her own play and continues to search for ways to create work.
