Research, Residencies, Workshops in Education and Artistic Development
Since 2000 Macauley has undertaken several medium to large scale performance, research and educational projects in the UK, USA Canada and in Europe.
Project SILENT STEPS, an early stage dance work was created whilst undertaking a apprenticeship with Rambert Dance Company. Silent Steps was performed in New York, London, Turkey, Spain and Denmark. Created in collaboration with composer Richard Leonard with support from London Contemporary Dance School.
Restaged and created on Tavaziva Dance Company.
Titled e-HM-phasis (2018) To summarise and accurately define the essence of the work, this word e-HM-phasis has the added value of including the letters "H" and "M" that can be used with double meaning of highlighting (and "emphasising" by so much) the initials HM (Harriet Macauley).
Essentially the theme of this NEW digital dance work is to highlight and present the unseen, something we are not capable of perceiving; captured and presented through film.Created in collaboration with La Sala Mi - Barcelona 2018
SILENT STEPS was created with the support of Arts Council England, Dance Base Edinburgh, METU Turkey, Sadler's Well, Lilian Baylis, and DUMBO New York.
In 2012 Harriet Macauley was a winner of Masdanza Canary Island international and produce two productions and a workshop within the event.
Throughout process and development I experimented with phrases of passive movements. There were intervals and episodes in which I acknowledged the inner and outer edges of my body. A process began to slowly filter through both natural and manufactured, consciousness and unconsciousness. Movements that came natural remained constant and the awareness of the manufactured and authentic flowed between mind (thinking) and no mind (presence). The journey seemed to undertake a process of intricate layers fluctuating between what I could only describe as relational practice; interactions with other objects, location, time, space, light and so-forth.

A solo section from project Duality. This work is an abstract representation on how technology shapes how we communicate, think, move, play and act. It creates a fast-paced world of technological illusion realised through cutting edge digital media - Green Screen, Live Feed, 2D and 3D animation and Digital interactive triggers. Duality allowed for a investigation into the mechanisms of dance and technology. How do they co-exist and interact in atmospheric, enveloping worlds? Performers connect and recognise the ways in which technology shapes how we communicate, move, play and act.
RUSH was developed in collaboration with Sammi Fang and Jui Wei. Centred on commuter chaos, this work examines the notion of non verbal communication within a confined space. This work is created with the support of Arts Council England, Dance Base Edinburgh, The Cochrane Theatre London, Sadler's Well, Lilian Baylis, and the Joyce Soho New York. In 2012 Harriet Macauley was a winner of Masdanza Canary Island international and produce two productions and a workshop within the event.
