STATE OF GRACE is a research organisation. We work with a wide range of artists, organisations, institutions, individuals and communities to progress our work and our understanding of diverse practice. We will share our learning amongst ourselves and amongst constituent communities and other communities of learning and interest.
Our principal research areas across 2019-19 are:
PRE-EXPRESSIVITY > PRESENCE > PERFORMANCE: ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE DEVELOPMENT - Training to Making to Sharing: Psychophysical, Biomechanical, Anthropological, Expeditionary and Other Approaches
STORIES AND SONGS - Everyone, every community and every culture has a story or a song that resonates deeply. They can delight, excite, challenge, bind and unite us, make us laugh and break our hearts. STATE OF GRACE continues the journey - an adventure - to collect and share these stories and songs, whoever and wherever they come from.

Key to 2018-19 Research is the core ensemble’s Collective and Individual Practice’s Programme - a Contextual Programme that develops each artist's unique practice/voice within and beyond the collective space..
