Getting to know you better - Meet Beth!

Welcome to the first in our series of "Getting to know you sessions" here at Surface Area Dance Theatre. This is where you'll get to learn a little bit more about those involved in the Auricular process and a peek into the mind of those who are helping to bring this piece to life. If you have any questions for the artists then let us know and we can add some of those in as well! First up is performer - Beth Loughran...

1 - First name:    

 2 - Word or phrase that's your favourite to sign: 
The word for green 

 3 - Can you speak any other languages? 
Yes, French and Spanish fluently and a bit of Italian.

 4 - Who inspires you?
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, especially their signature work 'Revelations'.

 5 - What is your first memory of dance?
Sitting on the floor looking at the soles of my feet, then looking up to my mum and saying 'mum I want to be a tap dancer' ...she saw to it! 

6 - Do you follow your head or your heart?
Heart ultimately.   

7 - Where is your favourite place that you've visted? 
I love London... But in addition, the Dia visual art gallery in Beacon, upstate New York really had an impact on me in lots of ways. Nicole and I visited there on a recent research and development trip, the recommendation was made by Laurence from the Baltic who is closely supporting SADT and Auricular.

8 - If you weren't a dance artist, what would you be?
A Police Detective or a Florist

9 - Describe what Auricular means to you in 3 words. 
It's quite hard to pin down, especially at this stage, but experiential, dynamic, transient.

10 - Best advice you've ever been given?
To draw boundaries.
