Natalie Rowland

Programme Leader for Dance, Aerial and Physical Theatre

Natalie Rowland

About

Natalie is a practitioner-researcher working with the Dance Department at the University of Chichester, specialising in aerial dance and scenography.

As an artist and researcher with an interdisciplinary practice, she finds the crossovers and relationships between dance, aerial, technologies and scenographic practice a fertile ground for exploring the potential of these arts.

Natalie is a professional design member of the Association of Lighting Designers (ALD) and continues her professional practice lighting dance, theatre and live music. Natalie’s work frequently involves non-traditional performance locations, digital media and interactivity.

Currently undertaking a PhD exploring the potential of a choreographic approach to lighting design, Natalie’s research considers the practitioner’s relationship with technology and its impact on the experience and process of lighting.
