Bridget Lappin is a dance artist, performer and choreographer currently based in London, UK.
Originally from the east coast of Canada, Bridget moved to the UK to study at London Contemporary Dance School, graduating with both a First-class BA (Hons) degree, and later, a MA, specialising in choreography. She has performed with Richard Alston Dance Company, Bern Ballett (under the direction of Cathy Marston), Humanah Productions, Peut-Être Theatre, Glyndebourne Opera Festival (UK) and several independent choreographers in both Canada and the UK.
As a solo artist, Bridget has presented her own choreographic work in several international platforms including Resolution (UK), Kinetic Studio (CA) and Tanz Made in Bern (CH). Her dance practice is rooted in improvisation and seeks to explore topics of identity and feminism by subverting pop culture and philosophy. She became a Member of Chisenhale Dance Space in 2017 and was awarded a residency to develop her solo practice through the Next Stages Programme.
Bridget has been on the Contemporary Dance Faculty at Ross Creek Centre for the Arts's Dance Summer Dance Programme since 2016 and had taught children's classes for
C-12 Dance Theatre and Chisenhale Dance Space.
"Her movements are at once assured and mysteriously quiet, clear and off-balance, her gestures fast and complex." - Nicolas Minns
"...there’s also a good bit of talent on display." - Sara Veale
"Bridget Lappin gives an impressively confident performance.... balancing on the cool/nerd divide, whip-cracking accents interrupting her body's free flow." - Lyndsey Winship
