Adrienne Hart

Adrienne Hart works internationally as a choreographer and as Artistic Director of Neon Dance. Collaboration is at the heart of every Neon Dance production with the company creating work designed for a diverse range of spaces; from intimate theatre venues to large-scale festivals. Neon Dance is currently in house company at Swindon Dance and Adrienne is a selected artist on the Sadler’s Wells Summer University programme (2015 – 2018). Outside of the UK, Adrienne has worked in Russia, Norway, Germany, Kosovo and most recently Japan.

Artistic Director and choreographer Adrienne Hart will be sharing plans for her new work Puzzle Creature, inspired by the work of artist / architect duo Arakawa and Madeline Gins. She will reveal early stage designs for an accessible and immersive set, designed by award winning design collective Numen. Hart will also explore and take a wider look at dance, architecture and music in the UK/Japan, alongside the pioneering work of Arakawa and Gins. Puzzle Creature is set to premiere at Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial (Japan) in September 2018, so we are very excited to have a sneak preview before it tour the UK from October 2018.
