Becky Namgauds

Category: Artist

Becky Namgauds is a choreographer and dance artist creating intense, powerful work that sits between dance, performance art and installation. Inspired by personal and political issues, her work is female-driven and internationally influenced with recurring themes of feminism and the environment. Choreographically, she draws on her wide range of movement experience, including contemporary dance, and Capoeira. Namgauds has created work for theatres, outdoor festivals, galleries and music videos. In 2018 she was the sole female choreographer on East Wall collaborating with Hofesh Shechter Company and LIFT for a site-specific performance at the Tower of London with 150 performers. Her show Like Honey was part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019 and solo Exhibit F premiered at Dance Umbrella 2019 as part of Out Of The System Mixed Bill and toured in early 2020. She is currently researching a new outdoor work, The Anthropocene, looking at eco-logical grief and human behaviour towards the planet.
Most recently she was a commissioned choreographer for EMERGENCE, the post-graduate dance company at Salford University which will be touring in the UK in 2021. This year Becky is working with aerial theatre company Scarabeus as choreographer for their new show Emerging and later in the year will be collaborating with multidisciplinary artistic duo Arbonauts, to create a site specific performance at a tidal wall on the Essex coastline with over 80 cold water swimmers for Estuary 2021 in September.
