Angela draws ideas from an inherited training in interdisciplinary practice, placing the dancing body within various contexts. She received the Lisa Ullmann scholarship to study with Alwin Nikolais and Murrey Louis in New York, and since has worked with Reinhild Hoffmann (Berlin) and Sara Pearson (USA).
Angela’s artistic practice is concerned with audience relations, performance installation, site work and collaboration. Since 1997 Angela has developed a number of innovative dance performance and installation works, many in collaboration with artist Caroline Broadhead and more recently artist Nathaniel Rackowe. Intrinsic to these works has been the potency of intimacy and of near or actual touch between viewers and performers. Her work has toured extensively both nationally and internationally. Past works include Between (2011-13), Censored(2010) in collaboration with Tate Artist Rooms/ Jenny Holzer, Sighted(2009), for Deloitte Ignite at The Royal Opera House, later reconstructed for Collect 2015 at Saatchi Gallery, and endings for Transitions Dance Company (2009/10). Angela was selected as one of the commissioned artists for the inaugural Place Prize 2004 with Threshold.
In regard to current projects, Angela has developed (Un)touched (2014 – 20) with artist Nathaniel Rackowe (shortlisted for the Jerwood Choreographic Project 2013) premiering as part of ‘Artists at Work’ at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf (2016) with further performances at Fold Gallery, London, The National Museum in Belgrade, and the Opera House, Oslo as part of CODA International Dance Festival. Other recent works include Close Distance (2017) commissioned by Nottingham Galleries and Museums, an installation in collaboration with artists Caroline Broadhead and Nic Sandiland for the 16th Century manor Wollaton Hall; (de)figured (2018) with Nathaniel Rackowe, an evolving installation commissioned by Elephant Magazine and subsequently re- worked for Royal Society of Sculptors and Alserkal Lates Festival (2019) in Dubai; Thermal Duets (2019), a series of short duets for ipods using thermal technologies shown in London, Brazil and Peru.
Angela was visiting choreographer / director for The London College of Fashion MA Costume for Performance (2015 -2017). She has taught at the Tanzhoff Akadamie, Switzerland, Central St Martins School of Art, London, Trinity Laban, London Contemporary Dance School, and Wimbledon College of Art. In 2018 she was Artist in Residence for the MA Creative Practice (Trinity Laban/Independance) at Siobhan Davies Studios. Her work has been supported by Arts Council England, Middlesex University, English Heritage, Canary Wharf PLC, and other foundations.
