In the last episode of series 2, Emma talks to Alice Williamson--a difficult artist to categorise. Essentially, she works with movement and design, be it making costumes or dancewear for her label Designed by Alice, her photography and illustrative work, toy design, research on 'skin hunger' or her collaboration with Dr. Merrit Moore combining robotics and dance.
Her design work begun when she had a parallel career as a ballet dancer in companies such as: Hong Kong Ballet, Northern Ballet and Staatsoper Ballet Berlin. She talks to Emma about staying creative when you're in a big organisation, her new found love of robotics and the journey a fishing net takes to become recyclable fabric for her “thoughtful” dancewear.
