Alison Thomas - Producer
Alison is an early-career choreographer, dance producer and creative facilitator with a strong fascination in the human condition. She creates her own work and supports the realisation of others’, motivated by her belief in dance’s communicative power, and its opportunity to connect people.
After an undergraduate degree in Human Geography and Social Psychology from the University of St Andrews in Scotland, she completed an MA in Creative Practice at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, combining her academic and creative work. Now based in London, her current interest lies in telling stories, questioning what makes us human, creating socio-politically engaged work, and facilitating opportunities to engage in the arts. She is passionate about widening access to dance by challenging who can do it and view it, working in public spaces and communities.
Across several projects Alison has worked with Botis Seva, James Cousins, Katrina McPherson, Gary Clarke, Lea Anderson, Studio Wayne McGregor, East London Dance, South East Dance and Dance Xchange. She recently started as the Programme Coordinator at Independent Dance where she works part-time alongside her freelance projects. She is also a Trustee of 2Faced Dance Company.
