Mrs Melissa Pasut


PROFESSIONAL TUTOR IN DANCE
Drama, Dance and Performance

pasutm@hope.ac.uk

I hold a BFA in Dance performance from the University of South Florida in the United States and have been teaching in higher education since 2014.  I am beginning my Masters of Research studies at the University of Roehampton this year with my focus on the Japanese movement practice of Butoh and classical dance language.

My interest is in choreographic research that constantly seeks to confuse the traditional boundaries that exist between dance and other art practices.  My professional works spans over two decades of interdisciplinary collaborations and performances that have been developed and presented internationally.

I am the founder of the dance company Anoikis and currently run a venue based in North Wales for experimental arts practices. My work and projects have been supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
