Rosie Kay, the first choreographer appointed as Leverhulme Artist in Residence at the Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity,  is working in close collaboration with Professor Stanley Ulijaszek, Dr Karin Eli, and other UBVO anthropologists to develop new ways of understanding eating disorders through a synergy of anthropological research and contemporary dance practice. Rosie Kay and Karin Eli’s joint project, Choreographing lived experience: the stories that dancing bodies tell,  explores the experiential realities of eating disorders. The dance work, which Kay has choreographed based on the research conducted during her residency, will be produced by Rosie Kay Dance Company.
