Simon Whitehead is a movement artist working widely. He has lived and worked in rural Wales for over 25 years, initially on the Llyn Penninsula and more recently in north Pembrokeshire. He is interested in the reciprocal and entangled relationships between our bodies, materials and the environments we inhabit. His works respond to circumstance though movement and image and manifest as solo or social choreographies, often working with the public, and with dancers, animals and places.
At present Simon is working on 2channel, a collaborative project with sound artist Barnaby Oliver, working through their local rivers in Abercych, west Wales and Melbourne, Australia. A conversation between artists and friends living at distance, whilst disclosing a river’s everywhereness.
