Nathaniel Parchment appointed Co-Director of Independent DanceTue 20 June 2023
Nathaniel Parchment is a London-based dance artist whose interests lie at the intersections of somatics, social dance cultures, global body-mind practices and performance. For the past 10 years he has worked extensively in India as a performer and teacher, as well as a facilitator of yoga retreats and dance education projects. More recently Nathaniel undertook the MA Creative Practice programme at Trinity Laban, which he will be graduating from this year, and has since presented his performance research at Fest en Fest, the international festival of expanded choreography initiated and curated by H2 DANCE. His experience includes co-direction of the Movement in Nature Gathering at Dragon Orchard, Herefordshire, with founder and long term friend and colleague Hugh Stanier. After a gradual transition with Independent Dance’s team this summer, Nathaniel will start formally in the role on 2 October.
