Since 1980 Wendy Houstoun has worked extensively as a solo performer and in collaboration with companies and artists whose work challenges, enriches, and extends the boundaries of dance and theatre.
She has worked with DV8 Physical Theatre, Tim Etchells and Forced Entertainment, film-maker David Hinton, Jonathan Burrows, Nigel Charnock, performance artist Rose English, Matteo Fargion, Lumiere & Son Theatre and Gary Stevens.
Houstoun’s solo pieces Haunted, Daunted and Flaunted (1996), Happy Hour (2001), The 48 Almost Love Lyrics(2004), Desert Island Dances (2006) and Keep Dancing (2009) have toured Europe, US and Australia.
She has made two films, Touched (1994) and Diary of a Dancer (1997, for the BBC with David Hinton. Over the last few years Houston has made work for Candoco, Yorke Dance Project, Verve and most recently with Antonia Grove from Probe, entitled Small Talk, currently touring the UK.
While her work challenges preconceptions about movement she communicates clearly and humorously about our culture.
