Jack is an award-winning choreographer/director, movement director, dancer and teacher working across dance, theatre, opera and film. He is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, and has been working internationally for the past 17 years. He creates evocative and compelling dance performance that is strongly rooted in the dancing and moving body. His practice is concerned with a variety of enquiries that explore ways in which to transform and deconstruct the body, states of consciousness and being, distortion of the body and creation of dynamic softness and flow. His work is often influenced by and attempts to connect to the goings on in nature and in society, is of an existential nature and attempts to zoom in on the inner and outer emotional and physical landscapes of the performer and audience. Jack's current enquiries are focused on finding choreographic languages that hone in on the human experience, purity of movement and image, life and movement in the in between spaces and themes of belonging, loneliness and place that explore the longing for connection and meaning that exists within all of us.
