Kirstie Simson

Kirstie Simson (UK) has been a continuous explosion in the contemporary dance scene, bringing audiences into contact with the vitality of pure creation in moment after moment of virtuoso improvisation. Called "a force of nature" by the New York Times, she is an award-winning dancer and teacher who has "immeasurably enriched and expanded the boundaries of New Dance" according to Time Out Magazine, London. Simson’s eternal subject is freedom, as she dares to go beyond the boundaries of form and structure to create movement out of the rhythm of life itself. For the past thirty years Kirstie has collaborated with many dancers and musicians who share a common interest in Improvisation, including Steve Paxton, Darrell Jones, Simone Forti, Michael Schumacher, Adam Benjamin and Le Quan Ninh. She was awarded a London Time Out ‘Dance and Performance Award’ as "a unique figure in the dance world” and Jennifer Dunning of the New York Times said of her dancing "Kirstie Simson is justly celebrated in Britain for exquisite, sensuous dancing that seems to come from some simple force of nature". She is renowned today as an excellent teacher and captivating performer who is a leading light in the field of dance improvisation and she is currently involved in making a film about Dance Improvisation with Scottish filmmaker Katrina McPherson that will be premiered in July 2011. In January 2008 Kirstie joined the faculty of the Dance Department at the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign. She continues to teach and perform world wide and to pursue collaborations with artists that she is drawn to working with.
