Portrait of Prue Lang

Prue Lang is an Australian choreographer returned to Melbourne after 17 years living and working in the European dance field. Her practice focuses on rigorous choreographic innovation, conceptually driven aesthetics, cross-disciplinary collaborations, and choreography in the expanded field. Her mode of artistic production is underlined by her feminist and environmental values. After graduating from VCA in Melbourne, Prue joined Meryl Tankard’s Australian Dance Theatre touring internationally. In 1996 she moved to France to work with the Choreographic National Centre in Angers, Compagnie Cre-Ange in Paris, as well as creating and facilitating her own independent projects and improvisation events. In 1999 she began an important collaboration with William Forsythe as a leading soloist and choreographer of the Frankfurt Ballett and The Forsythe Company. She created five original works for the company, before establishing herself as an independent choreographer.
