Julyen Hamilton


Julyen Hamilton- is a dancer / choreographer / poet / teacher / musician
He has been making and performing dances for 40 years throughout the world. Born and brought up in England he trained in London in the 1970's, a time of radical experimentation, he has been an exponent of innovative performance since that time.

His work is mostly improvised : he composes dance works instantly as well as the texts which often accompany them.
His work with text is unique. It fuses naturally his long-term writing practice with his refined skills in dancing.

When working with his company Allen's Line he directs dancers and lighting designers to make and perform work through this same immediacy.

Since the 80's he has performed constantly in close collaboration with many of the highest quality musicians from all over Europe. It is with some of these musicians that he gives readings of his poetry.
Julyen is well respected for his teaching which reflects his research and development into efficient ways in which technique can evolve and improvisational creativity might be imparted.
He is regularly invited to teach in major training centres throughout the world, his pedagogy centring on the elements of space, time, voice and dramaturgy.
He is at present performing the solos 'The Immaterial World' / ‘The Forerunner’ and ‘LANDSCAPE PORTRAIT’ ; performing with bass player Barre Phillips
and in productions of The Wheel in Brussels and The Needle in Berlin.

As a pianist he plays regularly with Voluptuous in Berlin and Brussels.
His label ‘BLUE DOG DVDs’ produces videos of his performances on DVD.
His first poetry/music cd 'The Edge of Letters' was released in 2011 and his new album 'Even Storms Break'
with bassist Wilbert de Joode comes out in 2016.
