Andrea Buckley is a certified Rolfer, dance performer, maker and teacher whose work is informed by 29 years of practice. Through various engagements and initiatives within the UK and abroad she has worked with artists such as Rosie Lee, Sue MacLenan, Kirstie Simson, Nancy Stark Smith, Lisa Nelson, Gill Clarke and Deborah Hay amongst others. Her work with Siobhan Davies Dance extends over a period of 16 years.

She has worked in small scale site specific, theatre and gallery based performance settings, working with a wide sector of the community, ranging from professional dancers, mixed ability groups, dance and theatre students.

Her research draws upon an extensive range of improvisation and contact skills and investigative movement practices where process and reflections are grounded in observation, perception, culture and imagination. The emphasis is on the sensing, thinking, moving body.

Working co creatively with Ch4pter and Liverpool Improvisation Collective  – a programme of workshops, performances, commissions and festivals were initiated within the Northwest of England.

At present and as a way to sustain a curiosity, there is a desire to cultivate work in collaboration with film artist Dan Williams –  researching further the scope for movement as a means to communicate the here and there of human encounters, in a live performance installation for 2019/20.
