Karen Christopher is a collaborative performance deviser, 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 now lives in London, working to define a practice which continues in a collaborative and plural mode. 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 within 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 Honorary Research Fellow at Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre, University of London, and an Artist Fellow in the Department of Drama at Queen Mary, University of London. Until recently she taught part-time on the MA-Advanced Theatre Practice course at Central School of Speech & Drama.
