My name is Lucy Haighton and I am a movement artist, physical performer & choreographer based in South Yorkshire.
I create live performance work as a solo artist and also work collaboratively on a number of projects with others, both in dance and other art forms including theatre, sound design and film. I work closely within the artistic community in Sheffield and South Yorkshire and have been supported by a number of organisations including Theatre Delicatessen & Access Space in Sheffield, Yorkshire Dance in Leeds, CAST in Doncaster, The Barnsley Civic & both Sheffield Universities.
I have a strong community practise working across a range of areas engaging with people of every age. I believe in and am passionate about participant led projects creating maximum social impact.
As a performer I have worked with a number of independent artists & companies including Gary Clarke, Lisa May Thomas, Gerry Turvey, Sonia Sabri (Manasamitra), Fertile Ground, Hype Dance Company, Balbir Singh Dance Company, Spiltmilk Dance, Forest Sounds Theatre and The Dance Network Sheffield. I’ve performed across the country in national tours and at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals.
I trained at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds and the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance in Dundee graduating in 2012.
