Imogene Newland is a researcher and practitioner whose work intersects gesture-based study within the fields of music performance and choreography. Originally trained as a pianist specialising in contemporary repertoire, Imogene became interested in the overlap between postmodern dance practices and gestural analysis and classification in music performance in 2003. She has subsequently formed a series of practice-led works that address the intimate and intensely physical relation between the body and the piano. She has recently completed her practice-led PhD “The Piano and the Female Body: the Erotic, the Seductive and the Transgressive” at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen's University Belfast.
