Biography: Pauline Mayers


Book Ticket

Biography is a platform that recognises and celebrates the work of experienced dance practitioners. Reflecting on their career in dance with an opportunity to explore their influences, identity and choreographic practice, artists are commissioned to create and present a new piece of work, followed by a dialogue with the audience.

This year we are delighted to invite Pauline Mayers. Pauline is a choreographer, performer and theatre practitioner based in Leeds. Originally from London, Pauline trained at the Rambert School and has danced with and taught for contemporary dance companies and choreographers across the UK including Janet Smith & Dancers (London), Diversions Dance (Cardiff), Phoenix Dance Company (Leeds) and The Ensemble Group (Edinburgh), touring both nationally and internationally.

Pauline incorporates interdisciplinary practice as an integral part of her process. Her work has been described as ‘beautiful, fierce and radical’.
