Antony Hamilton

Artistic Statement

My practice sits at the nexus of experimentation, with a multitude of disciplinary interests interwoven through the different works. Following instinct and intuition, I develop self-contained fully realized parallel worlds for the theatre that seem to have their own laws, logic and rituals. I am concerned with developing both formal choreographic language, and also hyper-real theatrical situations. In 2008 I formed Antony Hamilton Projects to create contemporary performances informed by an interest in multi-disciplinary practices. In these works I may combine experimental movement, visual art, costume, sound design, video or lighting to achieve an enigmatic outcome.
