Tim Darbyshire’s works employ physicality, choreography, sound, set and lighting design, visual installations and text, exploring ambiguities and tensions between humorous and melancholic states.
Tim studied Dance at Queensland University of Technology (2003). His education has continued through programs including DanceWEB (Scholarship recipient in 2006 and 2009), Formation d’artiste Chorégraphique at Centre National de Danse Contemporaine (France 2006-2007) and Victoria University’s Solo Residency program (2008). He has worked with choreographers including Vera Mantero, Emmanuelle Huyhn, Nuno Bizarro, Meg Stuart, David Wampach, Marianne Baillot, Antonio Julio, Christine de Schmedt, Eszter Salamon and Shelley Lasica.
In 2012 he presented More or Less Concrete at Arts House, followed by a remount for Dance Massive in 2013 and a European premiere at Noorderzon Festival in the Netherlands. In 2014 he was commissioned to develop Entitled TITLE (Working Title) for the Keir Choreographic Award as well as undertaking an IETM residency program in Europe and an exchange project between Campbelltown Arts Centre and Zodiak Centre for New Dance in Helsinki. His new work Stampede the Stampede will premiere in Dance Massive 2015.
Without a religion, Tim continues to create and perform work.
