PETER GROOM DANCE-THEATRE
Peter is an actor, dancer and choreographer working mainly with dance and theatre. Graduating Guildford School of Acting in 2013, he has worked both here in the UK and internationally. Alongside this he began to create his own work.
Peter has been supported as artist in residence at Battersea Arts Centre, received commissions from IdeasTap, Royal Philharmonic Society, Random Acts, and is currently Associate Choreographic Dance Maker at DanceCity, Newcastle for 2016/17.
'As a choreographer I want to take risks, and move dance forward in a way that is engaging, to both artists and audiences. I have a solid dance base and am concerned for the technique of dance in my work; however I have a strong theatre background also. I want to explore the whole world of the stage, not just the dance, but the space in which it exists, relationship of audience and performer, the performer and the dance. I want to create a world onstage that is full with all we feel in life; humour, absurdity, frustration, loneliness and joy. I want to dance with all of this.'
