Amy Bell

The Forecast

‘Sharp, laugh-out-loud funny, and astutely political, The Forecast is a brave and personal solo that stays in your mind.’ Emma Gladstone, Dance Umbrella

As the only dyke in the dance class, Amy finds new moves for a more radical notion of femininity. On a witty journey of transformation and becoming, she rides the blustery winds sweeping across the gendered body. Blending animations by Hetain Patel and a live digital soundscape by Jamie McCarthy with text and dance, prepare for a high chance of virtuosity, introspection and humour.

Amy Bell is a dance artist who unwraps conversations around queerness and slippages of meaning across language and movement. Her performance work is borne of binary-busting fervour. She aims to explode ‘them-and-us’ thinking – politically rigorous whilst uniquely accessible, her work offers nuance, warmth and humour to celebrate particularity and create connection.
