Elizabeth Simoens

Dancer and Choreographer


You get on the course and think ‘what is it that I want to do?’, and then Tony [Thatcher, programme leader MAC] helps you figure out what that is, where to read about it, where to learn about it and how to do it – but in a very hands-off way because he wants you to learn about it for yourself. Since we’re on a master’s course we’re all treated as adults, as artists who kind of know what we’re supposed to be doing, so instead of a teacher we need a guide. So all the projects end up being completely different – it’s not Tony’s vision, it’s not the teacher’s vision, it’s our vision with their help.
