Karen Christopher is a collaborative performance maker, performer, and teacher. Her company, Haranczak/Navarre Performance Projects, is currently engaged in creating a series of duet performances. She was a member of Chicago-based Goat Island Performance Group for 20 years until the group disbanded in 2009. She works at South House, her new studio in Faversham, Kent, UK, continuing to define her practice in collaborative performance making.
This work includes a search for points of intersection and startling combinations that surprise and awaken the mind allowing people to experience shifts of understanding and awareness through the community of the performance event. She’s listening for the unnoticed, the almost invisible, and the very quiet.
Karen is an Honorary Fellow of University College Falmouth, and an Artist Research Fellow in the Department of Drama at Queen Mary, University of London.
