Lizzie J Klotz is a dance and theatre artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne, working both regionally and nationally on a variety of projects as a choreographer, performer, facilitator and movement director.
Her work as a choreographer is driven by an interest in human behaviour, creating sensitive, humorous and thought-provoking dance theatre work.
Collaboration is key to informing her practice as a choreographer, working across art forms with companies, artists and collectives such as sculptor Joseph Hillier, dramaturg Rosa Postlethwaite and facilitator Alys North.
Most recently, Lizzie has worked as a movement director on Preconceived by Jonluke McKie and Luca Rutherford’s Political Party by Luca Rutherford.
As a performer, Lizzie has been working with Rosie Kay Dance Company, performing in the UK tour of MK Ultra in Spring 2017 and Autumn 2018.
Lizzie often incorporates participatory processes into her practice, within her own work as a choreographer and for other companies such as Cirque Bijou’s The Umbrella Project, Circus Central’s Youth Circus and Dance City’s Centre for Advanced Training.
