Lucy Suggate is a dance artist and choreographer based in the UK. Making working since 2003 she is recognised for her articulate and engaging solo performances as well as choreographic installations and public scores inspired by aspects of synchronicity and cooperation. Her movement practice is an ongoing inquiry into the perceptual and physical expansion that occurs when engaged in longterm moving and thinking. A lot of her current focus is around occupying spaces to practice in, investigating artistic extinction as feasible response to sustainability and revisioning future dance spaces as dynamic and flexible operations.
In 2013/14 Lucy became a Modul Dance Artist, supported by Mercat, Graner, Dansehallerne, BoraBora and Arts Council England Artist international development fund, to produce a durational solo that went on to inform her current work pilgrim. pilgrim has been presented internationally at Seoul International Dance Festival, Sonar Festival, Nottingham Contemporaries for NOTTDANCE 15 and the Solo Tanz Festival. Recent collaborations include working with Rosemary Butcher on Secrets of the Open Sea, Test Pieces and Wendy Houston’s stupid Women. Lucy is currently embarking on period of research into Trance and Dance produced by Dance4.
