Best described by a student, who after I had 3 bad attacks of Bells Palsy said, "Never mind Angus, you always looked like an angry boiled egg".
I do stuff that's mostly choreographic and based on movement.
I've made and directed around 85 pieces, funded, un-funded, awarded, commissioned. Many made in unusual ways and unusual places, across Europe, North and South America, Canada and the far east.
Taught for years at ArtEZ and EDDC Arnhem, The Scottish School of Contemporary Dance, Dartington College of Arts and Falmouth University.
Was acting head of Choreography and Creative Studies at Northern school of Contemporary Dance for 6 months, then a full-time lecturer for 2 years, and have taught as a visiting lecturer/artist in conservatoires and universities around Europe and in Venezuela, South Korea, Argentina, Canada and the USA.
Was visiting professor of choreography at Korean National University of the Arts in Seoul, and LEM Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Don't really enjoy the noise and hype of big things, the over-funded stuff and the spectacular. Enjoy more smaller things in unusual spaces and studios, work by the unfunded and the unnoticed, the improvisers, the different, the unknown and the broken.
People finding ways to move and compose and share themselves in space simply because they still have too. That's probably enough no?
