Caroline Williams is an artist working in multi-disciplinary participatory performance. Her work focuses on current political issues, for example the semantics of screens in relation to the war in Syria, migration or the relationship between loneliness and technology. Using personal narratives, she works to find a performative language that will most powerfully communicate the heart of these stories. At the core of her work is a passion to give people who wouldn’t primarily consider themselves artists a platform to create great works of art. She seeks stories that matter and people who have something important to say.
Projects include Make Yourself At Home at Nuit Blanche Brussels, Now Is The Time To Say Nothing at The Young Vic, Millions of Years for English National Opera at The British Museum, Dad Dancing with Second Hand Dance and Puffball at Battersea Arts Centre, Shadwell’s Tempest and Le Malade Imaginaire with OAE at Shakespeare’s Globe. Her installation at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Shakespeare’s Fools, was chosen to represent the UK at the Prague Quadrennial 2015. Caroline often works with Improbable theatre company and is co-founder of The International Activities Club, a performance collective who focus on experimental, responsive and intercultural participatory performance.
