Lizzy is a somatic dance artist with an international creative and teaching practice. Working in dance improvisation and site sensitive choreography, as well as photography and writing, my practice highlights and examines an embodied experience of the material and energetic dynamics within the shared space of our world. My work foregrounds a heightened sense of listening, presence and potential within unfolding interior and exterior awareness.
Trained in fine art, classical and contemporary dance and numerous somatic practices, I have been performing, choreographing, teaching, writing and researching dance and somatic practices for over three decades. I teach professional performers and in conservatoires and universities internationally; and in arts in health in my local community in inner London – supporting qualities of safety and freedom within the physical self and material world.
Lizzy has published extensively in the field of dance, arts and somatics, including book chapters and articles in both academic and wider journalistic fields. As a PGR at the Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University, she has produced research exploring how SRT supports the autonomic nervous system. She is currently engaged in a full time practice-based PhD ‘A Dance of Becoming’, exploring processes of embodied vitality and transformation through somatic dance, Skinner Releasing Technique and new materialist philosophies; funded by a scholarship from Midlands 4 Cities.
