Wendy Houstoun (UK)

Wendy Houstoun (UK)

Wendy has worked as an independent and collaborative theatre artist since 1980.

Her work hovers around the edges of movement and language. Previous performance work with companies (DV8 Physical Theatre, Forced Entertainment, Lumiere and Son) and artists (David Hinton, Matteo Fargion, Nigel Charnock) reflect this ongoing engagement.
Over time, she has developed solo work as a way of processing both formal investigations and life events and her pieces articulate responses to contemporary life with a serious playfulness. Haunted, Daunted, and Flaunted, Happy Hour, The 48 Almost Love Lyrics, Keep Dancing and Desert Island Dances have all been performed worldwide. A recent solo work, 50 Acts, continues to tour, having recently won a 2013 TMA award for achievement in dance. Pact with Pointlessness, her most recent work, is now also on tour and could be seen as a sequel to 50 Acts. Both 50 Acts and Pact have been nominated for a Critic’s Choice National Dance Award.
Following a number of pieces made for companies (Imperfect Storm for Candoco Dance Company and On The Range for Yorke Dance Project) Wendy is now developing a live directed performance called Stupid Women which will be performed as part of Nottdance Festival 2015.
