Matthew Hawkins

I am an independent practitioner of more than 25 years' standing. I work internationally as a teacher, performer and choreographer. I live in Edinburgh and am currently sustained by teaching opportunities in college settings (Glasgowclyde) and amid the professional and community cycles at Dancebase Edinburgh. I research and develop projects during choreographic residencies - the research also being a vehicle for discoveries I make during teaching. Residencies in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen (supported by Creative scotland and Edinburgh Council)have fostered collaborations with visual artists (Cupar Biennial), composers and contemporary musicians.My most recent performance project was in collaboration with Red Note Ensemble/Orkney Festival/Studio Wayne McGregor. I participate in score-based improvisational performance with In The Making - in initiatives I co-steer with dance artists Merav Israel and Claire Pencak
