Sam practices within performance, both as a performer and someone who designs performance within gallery spaces with a strong conceptual and research element. Their interests lie in experimenting with the body in relation to the built environment. Their work will often examine movement, perception and architecture. Sam Metz has trained in physical theatre and has a Masters in Architecture and Critical Theory from The University of Nottingham. Recent commissions include participatory performance at the National centre for Craft and Design (2016), participatory performance for InDialogue Conference (upcoming 2016), participatory workshops within contemporary art at Nottingham Contemporary (2016) and conceptual visualisations of movement for York St John’s University (2015). Sam was previously an Associate Artist at Nottingham Contemporary and now works as an artist, educator and researcher in museums and galleries within the East Midlands. They are part of the artist collective Guerrilla Art Lab, a Nottingham- based live art and performance collective.
