About Alan & the residency
Within Reach (a dance theatre solo)

'I am currently working as a solo dance artist based in Edinburgh. I have an interest in story- telling, using self -written monologues. The characters I am drawn to are usually iconic LGBTQ personas, such as Quentin Crisp, Kate Bush, Tennessee Williams, and Joan Crawford. I am interested in the use of dance, movement, physical gesture, humour, and text. I have presented work in black box theatres and in site-specific and flash mob presentations, most recently at the Edinburgh Fringe festival (2019) ‘Self-Portraits’ a specifically commissioned film by Dance Base in 2020 ‘Within Reach’ and the development of that filmed work at The Hidden Door festival (2022).

I have been working professionally in Scotland since 1989 as a choreographer, teacher, performer, and mentor. During the week-long residency in Ireland, I will focus and developing my choreographic language and continuing to find new written monologues. Having a residency to focus entirely on my creative work is what every artist hopes and strives for: time in a studio to explore, think, try out, create, reject, and explore some more. I am absolutely thrilled to have my first studio residency with Dance Ireland.'
