Christina Liddell is an independent dance artist based in Scotland. Upon graduation with a First Class BA Honours in 2012, Christina was awarded the Dancer's Emerging Bursary Scheme through Dance Base, under the mentorship of Alan Greig. Christina has performed within works by Angus Balbernie, Janis Claxton, Christine Devaney, Róisín O'Brien, Madgalena Schamberger and William Thorburn, amongst others. Her career has specialised in a dual combination of performance, inclusive dance and arts-and-heath practice.
As an artist and maker, Christina looks to craft her artistry within a fusion of multi-sensory art forms, to share compelling messages with the wider audience. She purposes her performative qualities to unveil integrity, grace and versatility, acting as a vessel to carry infinite depths of meaning.
As a teacher, she is passionate that the work she delivers nurtures abilities, confidence, interests and talents. She believes it is essential to embrace the diversity of groups, whilst also creating an inclusive environment. Christina likes to embrace a way working, where she is directly inspired by those she is working with, giving individuals and groups a sense of ownership. Two-way interaction is integrated by receiving individual contributions, directly and indirectly, which then influences the development of a session. She continuously aspires and hopes that individuals can come away, feeling uplifted with a sense of achievement, that they have ultimately played a significant role in what was expressed together.
Christina has a deep interest in collaborating with artists and is particularly drawn to the cross over of different art forms to inform new creative works. If you would like to find out more information about her artistic practice or have a project in mind, please contact her via the contact tab.
