Alice Weber received a classical training in her native Sydney. Alice has used improvised movement to foster a unique contemporary style that spans performance, choreography, self-choreography; teaching, coaching and movement direction.
London-based since 2013, she has performed and choreographed for institutions including Royal College of Music, London College of Fashion, Central St Martin’s, Hauser & Wirth London, Riverside Opera, London Contemporary Orchestra.
In 2016, she was a guest artist with Tanzcompagnie Gießen for TanzArt Ost-West; was artist in residence at Brierfield Mill for Crash2016 supported by In-Situ and Arts Council England; her choreographic film ‘A Vulnerable Pace’ was selected for Festival of Recorded Movement, Vancouver; performed for Hauser & Wirth's show of Fabio Mauri 'Oscuramento'; created new work 'Pomodoro' for Blue Cloud Scratch; and was selected for One Dance UK’s Choreographic Observership with Alexandra Green.
Alice's work is inspired by idiosyncracy, psychology, anatomical quirks and temporal dynamics. She works primarily in self-choreography but also teaches in West London.
Pomodoro is a work that compares the physical fragility of human life to that of a tomato. The work is self-aware of it's own absurdity; looks to explore our human experience with lightheartedness and joy.
