Malcolm Sutherland

Choreographic Statement:

A formulated language that has the ability to sustain its physical aesthetic whilst also reaching out to its audiences. Big themes are often present and are explored intelligently to enhance our understanding of a certain topic. Music plays a pivotal role in forming the core for the atmosphere to unfold, enveloping its surroundings with aural and visual stimuli. Whilst mainlining its choreographic signature, each new work has its individual existence, allowing there to be many contrasting elements between the pieces. With each new creation, a stronger presence of theatre grows from within, enabling the idea to be communicated through different mediums. There is a sense of reflection on our human nature, something we can all understand and relate to within ourselves.
