Molly and I are so happy to welcome fellow dance artist Beth Loughran to Surface Area Dance Theatre, 3 is the magic number!
Beth was born in Newcastle upon Tyne, her passion for dance and theatre was evident at a young age, Beth's love of the arts lead her to pursue a professional training in dance, focusing upon ballet and contemporary based techniques, while remaining passionately interested in contact improvisation, folk and social dances. After graduating Beth left Newcastle upon Tyne to further her training, leading to periods of research and creative development in London, Spain and New York. Beth's more recent journey directed her to Germany. During her time in Germany Beth explored the depths of true expressionism, performing dance theatre work based in Düsseldorf, this influencing her practice greatly and confirmed her love of theatricality. Beth's more recent engagement was with Cote-a-Cote Theatre Company, performing in many of the well known London theatres . The Hard Sell is Beth's first experience of working with Surface Area Dance Theatre, performing with long standing company members Nicole Vivien Watson and Molly Hodkinson, whom welcome Beth wholeheartedly to the company.
