The Immaterial World

"This is my take on the beyond as it resides right in the here and now. It is both eerie and assuring; it wavers calmly on the edge of perception and understanding. It provides little reference except the movement of and the sounds from the body. Welcome to the Immaterial World." (Julyen Hamilton)


Julyen Hamilton

British dancer and choreographer has been making dances for over 35 years throughout the world. Born and brought up in England he trained in London in the 1970’s, a time of radical experimentation, he has been an exponent of innovative performance since that time. His work is mostly improvised: he composes dance pieces instantly as well as the texts which often accompany them. When choreographing with his company ’Allen’s Line’ he directs dancers and lighting designers to make and perform work through this same immediacy. Since the 80’s he has performed in close collaboration with many live musicians from all over Europe. It is with some of these musicians that he gives readings of his poetry.
