Rambert Dance Company

I was fortunate enough to visit the Rambert Dance Company in London and draw at their rehearsal. The rehearsal was at an advanced stage so the dance was fairly polished with a lot of fast, swift movements, impossible to capture with representational drawing.

Thanks to my dabbles in drawing in abstraction, I had the confidence to follow their movements with charcoal on paper regardless of what the drawing looked like.

Most of the drawings were just unintelligible marks, smudges and smears but I managed to capture a few of the rare slower movements


About Shelley Morrow

Since 2011 I have been predominantly a figurative artist with an interest in conveying expression, movement and gesture. I take the drawings I make and explore them through various processes, particularly embroidery, textiles and etchings. I graduated with a BA in Fine Art at Camberwell School of Art in 1990 and currently taking my MA in Fine Art at Brighton University. I also work at Draw in Brighton, running and teaching Life Drawing sessions

    Hi Shelley I have followed Rambert intermittently since I was a teenager, recently seeing a performance in Bath, just such amazing movement and their rendition of Nina Simone was searing
