Andrea Buckley, Interview

Andrea Buckley has performed with many independent artists touring the UK, Europe and America, including Siobhan Davies Dance, Kirstie Simson, Nancy Stark-Smith, MacLennan Dance Company, Rosemary Lee, Gill Clarke and Deborah Hay. Her primary research as a performer and maker draws upon an extensive range of improvisation and contact improvisation skills as a way to continue to develop an awareness of the moving body and expand a repertoire of composition.

Andrea speaks about her personal journey into dance, and how she has navigated her career as an independent dance artist. She considers some of the early influences that propelled her into the independent dance sector, and talks about what interests her now, in particular detailing how her experience as a Rolfing practitioner feeds into her work and teaching.
