Julie Cunningham & Company

Rambert Associate

Award-winning dancer Julie Cunningham joined Rambert in September 2016 as the inaugural recipient of the Leverhulme Choreography Fellowship. She launched Julie Cunningham & Company with performances at the Barbican in April 2016, and has since created new site-specific work for the V&A’s REVEAL festival celebrating the opening of the museum’s new Exhibition Road Quarter.

Julie has worked professionally as a dance artist for 15 years performing both nationally and internationally. After training at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and also with Ballett der Stadt Theater Koblenz, Germany, the Merce cunningham Dance Company and the Michael Clark Compan, Julie worked on projects with Boris Charmatz for Musée de la Danse.

Julie is a guest teacher at Trinity Laban, Zurich University of the Arts, and has taught dance masterclasses in the UK, Europe, America and Brazil. She has assisted in staging the work of Merce Cunningham for American Ballet Theater and Rambert. In 2014 Julie was awarded Outstanding Modern Performance at the Critics Circle National Dance Awards for New Work with the Michael Clark Company.


Rambert’s Associates are offered advice, financial support and space as they develop new work. This work may differ in scale or location from Rambert’s touring programme, but is aligned in ambition, quality and values. We are proud to be associated with their work.
