Interview is the latest solo from Julyen Hamilton who has been making solo pieces constantly over the past 35 years. The piece presents both the interviewer and the interviewed.
It is the look of our times and a look at our times through the individual creator
being interviewed and creating.
brief like your heart
captured and evaporated;
a small world
a million small worlds,
west, sharp, sleep, wake;
your brief moment, pulsating.
Interview was premiered in Brussels in November 2016. Julyen Hamilton’s last solo ‘PLAY’ was shown in Studio ALTA also in 2015 and he performed in last year’s music festival ‘VS Interpretation’ 2016.
Julyen Hamilton is a dancer, choreographer, poet, teacher and a musician. He has been making and performing dances for 40 years throughout the world. Born and brought up in England he trained in London in the 1970’s, a time of radical experimentation, he has been an exponent of innovative performance since that time. His work is mostly improvised: he composes dance works instantly as well as the texts which often accompany them. His work with text is unique. It fuses naturally his long-term writing practice with his refined skills in dancing. When working with his company Allen’s Line he directs dancers and lighting designers to make and perform work through this same immediacy.
Since the 80’s he has performed constantly in close collaboration with many of the highest quality musicians from all over Europe. It is with some of these musicians that he gives readings of his poetry. He is well respected for his teaching which reflects his research and development into efficient ways in which technique can evolve and improvisational creativity might be imparted.
He is regularly invited to teach in major training centres throughout the world, his pedagogy centring on the elements of space, time, voice and dramaturgy.
