“I try to work on instinct as much as possible,” choreographer Holly Blakey admits. “I’m not indulging myself too much: I try not to overthink it. And, you know, I’ll wake up tomorrow and change it all probably.” Perched halfway up the stone staircase in the converted church-cum-community arts centre Islington Arts Factory, Holly is stealing time from two days of rehearsals which will form the backbone of her performance Abide at Convergence, a five day-long art, music and tech festival in venues across London. As bass rolls down the stairs towards us, Holly stands up. I follow her through the studio door towards chaos. Musicians Darkstar and Gwilym Gold skulk in the corner on laptops while stylist Hannah Hopkins squeezes half-naked dancers into ornate net dresses designed by Westminster graduate Philip Luu. Holly stands in the middle, the room’s conductor, directing energy wherever it is needed most.
