Biography

Up until the Covid-19 pandemic I was teaching alignment therapy sessions in New York. Simultaneously I was archiving my mother's legacy in London. My Fellowship was to make progress in sculpture-dance and multimedia while studying with US dance icons. I went to the US to enlarge artistic scope and break traditional boundaries. In 1960s London I was influenced by US abstract art, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, John Cage, and performance art. It was tantalisingly refreshing with its interdisciplinary focus. I created various multimedia events, films, sculpture, a fine jewellery collection, and 'alignment therapy' to improve dance technique and heal injuries. Through students and creatives, my influence extends their awareness within their art, their life and environmental issues. These past years I have been archiving and finding a suitable home for the Hilde Holger archive. This has also attracted many young seekers. The Churchill Fellowship gave me a great opportunity to expand my horizons and as a result I feel a responsibility to disseminate the knowledge. As Churchill said, "If they are going to cut Art Colleges, what are we actually fighting this war for."
