Winner of the Sadler’s Wells Global Dance Contest, James Wilton Dance presents a programme of dynamic and daring contemporary dance work where performers are pushed to their physical limits.
Drawing influence from martial arts, break dancing and capoeira, the works Cave, an exploration of our perceptions of reality, and Falling Unknown, a duet exploring self sacrifice, will leave audiences on the edges of their seats with their breathtaking athleticism and stunning imagery.
James Wilton began his choreographic career whilst a student at London Contemporary Dance School where his works Drift and Threads were toured nationally and international with LC3. After graduating from LCDS, James was commissioned to re-work for Scottish Dance Theatre for touring throughout 2010/11.
In 2010, James created his first professional work the Shortest Day, for performance at resolution! At the Place. Following this, the work was performed both nationally and internationally. In 2010 The Shortest Day won the Sadlers Wells "Global Dance Contest".
In December 2010, James received his first grant from Arts Council England and used to grant to create Cave whilst Artist in Residence at South Hill Park in Berkshire. Cave is being further developed as part of "Choreodrome" at The Place, and prepared for touring in 2012.
