Angus Balbernie

Angus Balbernie is an artist working mostly in dance and performance. He has created and directed over 60 pieces in Europe, the USA, South America, Canada and Asia. He works is recognised for his mentoring, practical teaching and research into clear methodologies for choreography, directing and composition, and for his occasional acting/performance roles.

Angus is currently on the staff at Artez Arnhem (Dancemakers Department), an Associate Lecturer at The Scottish School Of Contemporary Dance and Dartington College of Arts, and a visiting lecturer in choreography at KNUA, Seoul.

He originally started in street-theatre in southern France, then trained in Tai Chi in China, before taking a degree at Dartington College of Arts in theatre and dance, with an emphasis on anatomical release and contact improvisation. His ongoing research focuses on somatic and perceptual tunings in choreographic and compositional forms, and in how environmental interaction and wild landscape offer the potential for layered relationships between art, artists, metaphor and nature. This is drawn from a lifetime of climbing/falling off mountains and walking/being in wilderness. He has been nominated for an Isadora Duncan award in the USA. Registered charity no 1086983.
