leeanne litton artistic director

Lee-Anne is a Sydney based performance maker, physical performer and collaborator who has created and performed in works within the realms of physical theatre, circus and dance.

With more than a decade of professional experience, she cut her teeth with Legs on the Wall in 2005. 2006 Lee-Anne was a co founder of Physical Theatre Company, Strings Attached, which led to their first major work “A Return to the Trees” (2012). From 2010 Lee-Anne has been a collaborating artist with immersive Physical Theatre Company Stalker leading her to perform nationally and Internationally in works such as “Encoded”, “Pixel Mountain”, “Creature: Dot and the Kangaroo” and “Frameshift”. Lee-Anne continues her practice to collaborate as a free-lance artist, as a maker and performer.

Lee-Anne’s curiosity in the line between aerial performance and dance theatre and her strong investigation and passion for Contact Improvisation, informs her work both on the ground and in the air, which has given her the opportunity to choreograph aerial-dance scenes for several large-scale productions, both nationally and internationally.

Over the last few years, she has nurtured her interest in the poetical and expressive possibilities that arise from combining aerial performance and dance theatre, developing a strong technical practice that is reflected in her work as well as in the classes she regularly teaches. Her teaching credits include; Legs, Strings Attached, Stalker, Force Majeure, SYDC, ACPE, USNW, NIDA, Aerialize, Touch Compass Co, Dance Integrated Australia, InsideOutside Theatre.

 

Lee-Anne is thrilled to be back with Legs On The Wall fueling the artistic vision as a Co-Artistic Director; standing alongside her partner in crime, Joshua Thomson.
