Julia James-Griffiths is an emerging dance artist based in Scotland. She works as a teacher, performer and choreographer.
As a performer, some of the artists she has worked with have been: Kirstie Simson, Henri Oguike, Matthew Robinson, Tommy Small, Annarita Mazzilli, Guy Nader and Maria Campos, Merav Israel, Natalia Iwaniec, and Christine Devaney.
As an artist, Julia is interested in exploring new movement vocabularies and different forms of artistic expression. Whilst researching the possibilities of the body and mind, these discoveries influence her approach and interpretation of dance theatre and the movement practice she delivers. She has a particular interest in Gaga and Flying Low technique, and intends to continue her training in these techniques and in the future look into training as a Gaga teacher.
The inspiration behind her work comes from her interest in exploring human psychology and the senses. She has a keen interest in developing work that is multi-layered in form, visually artistic, and thought provoking. Her work is considered and explored with innovation, intrigue and honesty, with the aim of expressing that which is unspoken.
She is currently in the process of creating a new contemporary dance theatre piece titled 'The Box' which explores the impact depression can have on an individual, and how our society responds to it.
