Lloyd Newson

Lloyd Newson’s work since 1986 as the Director of London-based DV8 Physical Theatre has had a dynamic impact on contemporary dance by challenging the traditional aesthetics and forms which pervade most modern and classical dance. Newson’s work concentrates on connecting meaning to movement and addressing social issues.

Newson has created 14 works for stage, and four films, consistently receiving major British and international awards, including 2 Prix Italia and an international Emmy. His latest film, loosely based on the stage production of “The Cost of Living”, is being shown at festivals worldwide throughout 2005.

After studying psychology at university, Newson won a full scholarship to London Contemporary Dance School. He went on to dance with many notable choreographers of the era before founding DV8. His work has included commissions from the Sydney 2000 Olympic Arts Festivals and Tate Modern, and films for the BBC and Channel 4. Newson’s new stage production, “Just for Show”, will tour internationally during 2005.
