Hailed as “British dance’s true iconoclast”, Michael Clark is a defining cultural figure. Since emerging in the 1980s as a prodigy at London’s Royal Ballet School, he has remained at the forefront of innovation in dance, collaborating with – among others – such compelling artists as Sarah Lucas, Leigh Bowery, Peter Doig and Charles Atlas, and musicians Mark E. Smith, Wire, Scritti Politti and Relaxed Muscle.

Clark founded his own company in 1984 which continues to tour worldwide. Michael Clark Company has introduced dance to new audiences by performing at unorthodox venues such as Tate Modern in London and the Whitney Museum in New York, and was the opening act of the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2015.
