Holly formed the live art company Hunt & Darton with Jenny Hunt 5 years ago. Hunt & Darton work with spoken word, movement, sound and installation. Their work comes out of a shared interest in what it means to be human. They make work about common problems, embarrassment and human behavior. They tend towards the deadpan and the absurd. Performances include, Desperately seeking anything, Everybody moving on, Break your own Pony. Hunt & Darton bar nights and the Hunt & Darton driving range.
