Amy Bell is a Brighton based dance artist whose work embraces performing, making, writing, teaching, and curation.
As a maker Amy’s current installation project TOMBO(Y)LA sits alongside The Forecast, a theatre solo which will premiere at The Place, London in 2018. 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 collaborated with live artist Lucy Hutson on research project Tiny Natural Lives for The Sick of The Fringe Festival in London and has choreographed and featured in film as part of Jane Horrocks’ industrial music drama Cotton Panic in collaboration with choreographer Lorena Randi.
Amy’s performance work has included theatrical, installation and site-sensitive works for Tino Sehgal, Hussein Chalayan & Damien Jalet, Lea Anderson, Charlotte Spencer, Marco D’Agostin and Maresa von Stockert’s Tilted Productions amongst others. She is currently touring in Europe with Chiara Frigo’s tap dance solo work West End and with Alessandro Sciarroni’s Schuhplattler-inspired FOLK-S, Will you still love me tomorrow? and Joseph Kids for young audiences.
