straybird was set up by Lucy Cash and Becky Edmunds, two independent artists whose practices have spanned dance, live art and moving image disciplines.

Created as a platform for collaborative moving image works and innovative curations, straybird projects consider the expansion of choreographic thinking beyond dance in order to offer distinctive, haptic ways of exploring the world around us.

Enjoying the different perspective that work made through dialogue brings; in September 2014 we extended our scope and began working on a number of collaborative commissions with different invited artists. These include Some Patterns of Current for Hampton Library (with Sheila Ghelani) and Hawkers Pick Over Fruit Here (with Zoe Manders, Scott Smith, and Duncan Whitley).  

straybird are Artsadmin associate artists 2013 – 2015.

straybird is currently led by Lucy Cash.


Both artists continue to make work individually – please see:
