Mark Edward is nationally renowned for creating work that has a very distinct personal and choreographic signature. His dance theatre work has a specific quirky language that combines dark humour, irony and parody. His choreographic ‘style’ fuses a range of art forms together in order to allow for a varied performance aesthetic. Mark is known for his hilarious ‘playfulness’ and his wicked sense of humour which transfers into his choreography. This has ranged from 7ft rabbits invading the performance space; handbags falling from ‘grace’; huge trampolines; dancing nuns; drag artists as 1950’s usherettes; electronic scooters en mass; fire works; bingo callers; original 90 year old Vaudeville performers; 2ft stiletto heal shoes; grand pianos with their own ‘personality’ and a dance language that reaps a fresh insight. He has created a series of works for a broad base of dance companies; community groups; showcase arenas and commissioned educational environments as ‘artist in residence’. Each choreographic work Mark creates his visually rich and defies a specific ‘category’.

Mark has worked/collaborated with Rambert Dance Company, Penny Arcade, Julie Tolentino, Senza Tempo Dance Theatre Company, Hilton & Co, Engineers, Ezimotion and a range of other high profiling companies/artists.

Producer, writer and performer in the film: Council House Movie Star.

Mark holds an MA in Dance Studies, B.A (hons) in Live Art, Dance and Drama, PGCert in HE and in 2008 was awarded Teaching Fellowship from EHU in recognition of his innovative learning approaches within a Dance and interdisciplinary arts practice arena.

“Mark Edward's work is refreshingly irreverant. Edward’s ability to question modern dance conventions through volatile, engaging tactics is both commendable and riveting.

It is not possible to watch Edward’s work without reflecting on modern dance culture which he so excellently parodies”.
Professor Christy Adair, 2008, Dance Writer

"Any conversation with Mark reveals his love for dance, his verve and creativity and his ability to role model. Rarely have we encountered such a dynamic, influential, credible force in a university setting. Mark clearly has a sound educational philosophy which comes alive in his articulation of why certain approaches to learning about dance and through dance are exemplary practice. He has demonstrable commitment to research and scholarship and importantly he is a 'doer' as well as a 'talker'"
