Bridie Gane

I am a choreographer and performer based in Glasgow creating work with a unique, retro theatricality. I was previously based in Berlin where my solo choreography, BIM BAM BUM (2014) was awarded the title of the Best German Dance Solo at the Euro Scene Leipzig's Competition.

Since moving to Scotland in 2016 I've created solo and group choreographies that have been performed as part of Dance Base's Spring showcase, at Heads Up (part of Dance Base's Fringe programme), at Buzzcut and at Chill Habibi 2017(part of Summerhall's Fringe programme), and more recently showing work at The Tron, and as part of Dance Base's Festival programme 2018 and 2019.

My screen dance work Never Walk Alone (2016) explored the subject of Brexit with light heartedness and poignancy. This was selected by The Work Room to feature as part of 'In Motion', a showcase to highlight screen dance artists in Scotland produced by Katrina McPherson.

In 2018 I was commissioned by Dance Base to choreograph 'Bonnie and her Splashmob', an intergenerational diving-themed Flashmob for the European championships 2018 and Dance Base, involving two Dance Base companies, Lothian Youth Dance company and PRIME, Dance Base’s semi-professional 60+ dance company.

My work aims to be accessible, whimsical, quick and sharp with an emphasis on the female protagonist.
