Lucy is a freelance dance artist living in Rhondda Cynon Taff. She trained at Northern School of Contemporary Dance before joining Emergence – postgraduate company of Joss Arnott and University of Salford.
Lucy has danced in choreographic exploration labs with NDCWales (Laboratori), and Phoenix Dance Theatre (Choreographers & Composers Lab), alongside R&D’s for independent dance artists. She was also a host during Merthyr’s trial of The Talking Shop (Omidaze Productions), facilitating cultural conversations and sharing art with the locals.
Most recently, Lucy was commissioned by Make It! and Rhondda Arts Festival to translate her Screendance ‘Treorchy’ (Creative Cardiff commission 2021) into a live dance duet for indoor and outdoor spaces, featuring poetry written and performed by her Gran.
Lucy joined Ransack’s EXPLORE programme in 2018 before joining the company fully in 2022 for the creation period of US & THEM. Lucy is enjoying teaching and shadowing on Ransack’s community outreach this summer and looking forward to the tour later this year.
