Biography

Eddie Ladd

Eddie graduated from University College of Wales, Aberystwyth in 1985 and then worked with the Moving Being company in Cardiff. Between 1987 and 1990 she worked with Hijinx, Taliesin, Volcano and Theatrig. For twelve years she appeared frequently with Brith Gof: performing, writing and composing music.

She began creating her own work around 1993. Some of her shows were theatre Productions whilst other Productions were staged in locations such as houses, farmyards and fields. She has made use of New Technologies since starting her practice and in 2002 she received a fellowship from NESTA to support this aspect of her work.


The Project

Eddie Ladd - Bobby Sands memorial race; Photo: Cara BrostromEven though she has received a college education and worked for twenty five years in experimental theatre, Eddie believes that she should persist to learn continuously. She primarily wishes to refine the dance and physical aspects of her work. After creating fourteen productions since 1993, she is eager to avoid getting into a rut; her application for a Creative Wales Award, therefore, will "take her back to school".

She hopes to create a year long curriculum and that up to ten dancers, choreographers and directors will follow it and learn. Eddie wishes to concentrate with them on the craft of dancing or moving as well as their philosophical, biological and political attitudes. Dance is a house with many rooms; the hope therefore is to move amongst the rooms and experiment.
