Amy Bell is a Brighton based dance artist whose work embraces performing, making, writing, teaching, and curation.
Amy is a Work Place Artist on The Place’s associate artist scheme. Her current critically acclaimed solo show, The Forecast, takes a poetic and ironic look at the cloud-like shiftings of gender and sexual identity. Her installation project TOMBO(Y)LA investigates gender performativity and unruly femininities through conversation and body. These works use the interplay and slippage between words and body to interrogate processes of change in felt gender and sexual identities. Previously, together with Valentina Golfieri she made a series of darkly absurd short duets including I Just Close My Eyes: Here Are The Devils. Amy has also created collaborations with live artist Lucy Hutson on Tiny Natural Lives, and with actress Jane Horrocks on Cotton Panic.
Amy’s performance work has included theatrical, installation and site-sensitive works for Tino Sehgal, Hussein Chalayan & Damien Jalet, Alessandro Sciarroni, Lea Anderson, Charlotte Spencer, Chiara Frigo, Marco D’Agostin and Maresa von Stockert’s Tilted Productions amongst others. Chiara Frigo created her tap dance solo West End for Amy in 2015 and Amy currently tours with Alessandro Sciarroni’s iconic FOLK-S, will you still love me tomorrow? and with Joseph Kids for young audiences.
