Affective Choreography in Performance (ACiP) applied embodied knowledge relating to touch in developing innovative movement methodologies within performance. It consisted of a body of choreographic work which Pavey undertook for two productions of Ann Coburn’s play Get Up and Tie Your Fingers, a 2014 Scottish/English tour and a community adaptation presented in Eyemouth, Scotland in 2016. The play tells the story of the Eyemouth Fishing Disaster of 1881 from the perspective of the herring lassies.

The research investigated how awareness of the qualities of touch can develop performers’ aesthetic and somatic sensibilities, and how this can result in newly informed actions solicitous of empathic forms of audience response.
