Kane John Mills is an emerging writer, poet, dance, theatre and installation artist, and has just graduated from Northern School of Contemporary Dance. He has a keen interest in Psychology which definitely informs his work. He wishes to have his own inclusive company in the future.
He trained at Swindon Dance's CAT scheme in Exeter (Youth Dance Academy) for five years and Plymouth Youth Dance Company (at the Barbican Theatre Plymouth) for seven years. He has performed and toured in many productions such as works by Jasmin Vardimon, Yael Flexer, Protein Dance, Hannes Langolf, Jos Baker and he has also recently become a member of GRIT Dance Company.
He has been a recipient for the last two years of the Young Choreographer’s South West Choreographic Bursary. This has enabled him to create two works with funding and mentorship support (from Russell Maliphant and Jenni Wren of Slanjayvah Danza).
He is in his second year of being a National Dance Ambassador for One Dance UK and enjoys being a strong advocate for the arts community.
Remnants (A triple bill of short works)
Remnants is a triple bill of three short works.
‘The Mask You Wear’ is a physical and intricate dance theatre solo that delves into the façade that people put on in order to maintain a false but more idealistic perception of themselves and what could happen once you no longer have it in you to sustain this front.
‘It keeps me up at night’ is an auditory composition, examining an imagined thought process that could occur for a person if someone they knew went missing.
‘Divulge’ is a dance theatre solo. Personally I find myself often in situations where I accidentally reveal a little too much about myself. Despite this inability to filter oneself at times I still recognise there are things I do not discuss with others and so I created this work to share honest things that no longer have to stay unsaid.
