Stacie Lee Bennett
Stacie Lee Bennett is a Leverhulme-funded Research Associate on ‘Physical Actor Training – an online A–Z’, at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK. She is a dance artist and filmmaker, whose work and interests interweave documentary-style films and visual art. After graduating from the University of Chester with a 1st Class Honours degree in Dance in 2011, Stacie then gained an MFA in Choreography from the University of Roehampton in 2013. Her work aims to diversify and re-present the experience and potential of dance/performance through the use of digital tools, specifically film. Her latest collaboration is a dance film titled Who is the Land, which has just finished showing at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. The film collaboration with choreographer Bethan Peters explored the cultivation of choreography in an environment of constant change, the UK coastline. Stacie has worked with a diverse range of international practitioners in videographic and creative roles. Clients include Trinity Laban, The Place, Roehampton University, Digital Theatre, Reactive Graphics, Ocean Outdoor, Canterbury Cathedral, Simon Ellis, Jia-Yu Corti, Emilyn Claid, Mary Armentrout, Igor and Moreno, and most recently Judita Vivas.
