Amy Toner

After graduating with a first class degree at the University of Chichester, Amy has continued to develop her practice as a choreographer and performance-maker. Her practice is concerned with composing sensory situations in collaboration with the seemingly less significant senses of smell, taste and touch. In developing this practice she had the opportunity to collaborate with the city company of Amsterdam, ICKamsterdam, under the co-ordination of choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C Scholten. The collaboration was centred around the Sensorium Toolkit project which aimed to create a dance experience based on four sensorial inputs (smells, texts, sound and illustrations). Currently, Amy is undertaking research that questions the visual medium of dance, culminating in performance for both visually impaired and sighted audience members.
