Gillie is an artist. From Gillie’s practice of dance and choreography emerge artworks that manifest as performances, texts, and events, presented in contexts associated with dance, theatre, live art and experimental performance, throughout the UK and across Europe. She received a first class BA (Hons) from the University of Surrey, was a recipient of the 2008 and 2013 danceWEB scholarships, and held an AHRC studentship to undertake an MA in Performance and Creative Research at Roehampton University, which she completed with distinction in 2011. Gillie works as a producer at Chisenhale Dance Space. She has worked in a range of education and community contexts for more than a decade, and moonlights as an Artistic Assessor for Arts Council England. She is currently supported by Artsadmin’s Artists’ Bursary Scheme. Gillie started to write for BELLYFLOP shortly after BELLYFLOP founder Louise Mochia interviewed her about her work for the magazine.
