Luke Pell

Luke is fascinated by detail, nuances of time, texture, memory and landscape.

He is a maker, curator, and dramaturg, who collaborates with other artists and organisations imagining alternative contexts for performance, participation and discourse that might reveal wisdom for living. Noticing threads that weave between people and places, his artistic projects take form as intimate encounters, poetic objects, installations and designed environments – choreographies – for physical and digital spaces.

Alongside his own artistic projects he works as a dramaturg for dance and choreography, recently collaborating with Claire Cunningham and Jess Curtis on The Way You Look (At Me) Tonight, Robert Softley-Gale Purposeless Movements for Birds of Paradise Theatre, Caroline Bowditch’s Falling in Love with Frida, and regularly with Janice Parker.

In 2018 he was Guest Dramaturg with South East Dance as part of their Dramaturg in Residence Programme, and dramaturg for Mirjam Gutner’s Skinned.

Luke is a Dance Base (Edinburgh) Associate Artist 2017-2019, and Associate Artist for Fevered Sleep. He was formerly Head of Learning and Research for Candoco Company, and Guest Curator of their In Dialogue Series, from 2012-2016 he was Chair of the Board of Chisenhale Dance Space, London.
