Art e-Facts 23

Aberdeen born Michael Clark (1962) is one of the worlds leading contemporary Dancers and Choreographers. He was classically trained at the Royal ballet but was highly immersed and influential in the artistic club and sub culture of the 1980’s. His performances are highly visual and often have specific references to contemporary art, for example the projection of Andy Warhol’s “Liz” and “The Great Rock and Roll Swindle” by Julien Temple in the production of Mmm…

Clark choreographs pieces to an eclectic range of music including The Fall, Laibach, Wire, Public Image Ltd., Stephen Sondheim, Sex Pistols and Igor Stravinsky. His practice is often collaborative and he has worked closely with Video Artists, Fashion Designers and Musicians including Charles Atlas, Leigh Bowery, Trojan, Bodymap, Sarah Lucas, The Anthony D’Offay Gallery and Mark e Smith and the Fall.
