ABOUT

Lucy Waterhouse is a choreographer and theatre maker. Her work is driven by provocative ideas and is often inspired by other disciplines such as science and visual art.

 

Lucy graduated from Bristol University in 2017 with a BA in Theatre and English. Since she has developed the dance theatre work, SCHIELE, which toured in Bristol and Bath. In 2019, SCHIELE was performed at the Royal Academy of Arts for the RA Late: Vienna Cabaret Night, as part of their 'Klimt / Schiele' exhibition. 

 

In 2018, Lucy was awarded the 'Visions of Science Bursary' and as a result created the dance film based on black holes, 'Accrete', in collaboration with researchers in astrophysics from the University of Bath.

 

As a movement director Lucy has worked with Process Theatre on the touring verbatim production, Things We Do Not Know and is currently working with director, Caroline Hunt, and writer, Adam Peck, on an R&D for a theatre project based on the stories behind fell running.

 

Previously, Lucy has worked for Rise Youth Dance, Creative Youth Network, Raymond Gubbay and Flying Music Theatre Company, and has performed for Complicite, James Wilton Dance, and TrashDollys.

Lucy draws a lot of inspiration from work outside of the UK and other disciplines, and is open to collaborative possibilities within the UK and beyond.

Lucy is a theatre director and movement director based in London. This year she has been the Associate Director on the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Julius Caesar. After a run in Stratford-upon-Avon the show went on a 9 week tour, and part of Lucy's role was working with 6 community champions in each city, and integrating them into the production alongside the 19 professional actors. Lucy also helped maintain the production on tour and in each new venue, and supported the movement-heavy aspects of the show.

She was also Lucy's Assistant Director on the UK tour and West End transfer of David Mamet's play, Oleanna, which was voted one of The Guardians 'Top 10 plays of 2020'.
