Sabina Netherclift – Voices Now Movement Director

Written by Published in Artist, Blog Post, Curator, Interview, News, Voices Now Blog

Sabina trained with Jacques Lecoq in Paris. She is a director, movement director, performer and co-founded Filament Theatre with Osnat Schmool. Filament combines close part harmony singing with devised physical theatre, and recently created Earth Makes No Sound, a mass choral piece inspired by and exploring the four elements, which premiered at the Queen Elizabeth Hall as part of Chorus Fest. Sabina has performed with Clod Ensemble, Young Vic Theatre, RSC, and is a resident artist at South Street Arts Centre for whom she co-wrote The Great British Bump Off to celebrate Reading’s Year of Culture in 2016.

Sabina is a lecturer in Contemporary Theatre Practice at Guildford School of Acting and has run workshops on choral music/movement for Southbank Centre, Whitechapel Gallery, Central School of Speech and Drama, Rose Bruford, Greenwich Theatre and Stratford Circus Arts Centre. Her directing work includes all Filament’s work to date, including Rufus Longbottom and the Space Rabbit (currently in development) Momo, Under One Roof and Drive Ride Walk. Other directing work includes 1 Beach Rd (Redcape Theatre) The Labour Exchange (South Street Arts Centre) The Deadly Curse (Opera North Education) Cold Hands Warm Hearts (ENO Baylis) and The Curious Incident in Battersea Park (Royal Opera House/Turtle Key). Work as a movement director includes How High is Up and Under the Bed (Theatre Centre) The Dong with the Luminous Nose, Spangleguts and Everybody’s Theatre (London Bubble) Blood Drive, Re:Love and The Happiness of Fish (Bridewell Theatre Company).

I am really looking forward to exploring how the choirs taking part in Voices Now can work together both vocally and physically to combine choral movement with their glorious sound.
