Imogene Newland is a British artist, pianist, choreographer, director and creator of contemporary performance. Originally trained as a pianist, Imogene became interested in the overlap between gesture-based research in the fields of music performance and choreography in 2003. She has subsequently formed a series of works that address the intimate and intensely physical relation between music and the body. Imogene holds an MA with distinction in choreography from Dartington College of Arts and a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music in piano performance. She completed her interdisciplinary practice-led PhD 'The piano and the female body: The erotic, the seductive and the transgressive' at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast in 2011.
