Sara Wookey


Sara Wookey is an Affiliate at the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy.

Sara’s transdisciplinary research is informed by her 30 years as an internationally recognised dance practitioner. Her research asks pressing questions about the nature of human interaction that finds articulation through theatres, outdoor sites and museum spaces.

Her current concern is how dance and expanded choreography, as relational and site-based practices, change the imaginary of relationships between humans, non-humans and material objects in ways that can be more inclusive and sustainable. Solutions emerge from specific, human centered experiences that detail the kinds of relations that the artist offers.

Her argument centers around the way in which personal ways of knowing are negotiated through ones’ embodied social-spatial experiences (i.e. ‘lived experience’) and, therefore, needs to be considered in our contemporary moment.

She completed a Post-Doctoral role with Royal Holloway University of London working alongside sociologist Dr Louise Ashley and currently serves as a Trustee with Dancers’ Career Development and is an Associate Researcher for Precarious Movements at the University of New South Wales and with the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy at Cambridge University.

Affiliates include Tate Modern, Art Science Museum Singapore, Van Abbemuseum, Dance East and Cambridge University.
