Claire Hind and Gary Winters collaborate on visual exhibitions, live performance pieces for the city and for the studio, gallery or museum; they also make Super 8mm film shorts, printed artworks and boxed archives that slip between performance documentation and artefact. Their collaboration encounters the relationship between writing, play and performance and the possibilities of slippage between the self and character.
Claire Hind is course leader for the MA in Theatre and Performance at York St John University with a PhD in performance practice from the University of Leeds.
Gary Winters is Co-artistic Director of performance company Lone Twin. Celebrated for creating a broad range of projects, from theatrical production to participatory public events, the company's work is regularly shown across the world to popular and critical acclaim.
