‘One of the most overtly theatrical choreographers of the British New Wave.’ (The Observer). Fleur Darkin’s choreography has been described as ‘tightly written dance’ (The Times), ‘powerful and disturbing’ (The Stage) and ‘always inventive’ (Telegraph).  

Darkin’s career has included choreographic stints at Laban, Royal Opera House, The Place and O2.

As a former Associate Artist at Bristol Old Vic, her commissions include Jardin D’Europe, Linbury Trust, Jerwood, The Place Prize, and Glasgow 2014.
