Mr ANDREW SANGER profile picture
  • Student
  • Dept of Anthropology
  • Faculty of S&HS

Andrew graduated with a BS in Dance Summa Cum Laude from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan in 2015. He then moved to London, UK and completed a MA in Dance Anthropology with Distinction at Roehampton University in 2017. He has performed works by Biba Bell in collaboration with sculpture artist Nick Cave, Dwight Rhoden, and Doug Varone and now performs with Jody Oberfelder Projects in the USA, UK, and Germany. He’s presented choreography at the VFD and Omved Gardens in London. He is currently a Lecturer in Dance at Roehampton University and a PhD researcher at University College London in Anthropology under the supervision of Helene Nevue-Kringelbach and Jerome Lewis. His research combines ethnography, performance, queerness, and ecology both embodied and inscribed.

Research Summary

Andrew's doctoral research is based off of 18 months of fieldwork in the United Kingdom between 2020-2021 of professional choreographers, performers, activists, and facilitators who use dance and movement to explore environmental themes. The project examines the potential for movement-based performance and practice to embolden and question our relationship with the more-than-human. What does a performative, somatic response to the climate crisis look like? Why choose to respond in this way? In what ways is dancing with an onion, urgent, necessary, and appropriate in the face of extinction?
