I not I lives within an installation for theatre inviting the audience to venture into a world of the familiar unfamiliar; chaos of gesturing and inanimate. Limbs and gestures cut loose, gain a life and truth of their own, moving into the realm of uninhabited forms and meanings.
Colette pushes the performers into the experience of being outside one’s body, of living it as a foreign entity. She asks, “Which forms and meanings are left to discover when one disassociates the ‘human’ from the body its gestures?”
Colette Sadler was born in Glasgow in 1974. Trained in Classical Ballet at the Scottish Ballet, then completed a BA (Hons) at the Laban centre London. On graduation she was a member of Transitions Dance Company 94. She worked Internationally as a dancer between 1995‐2002 with choreographers including Jeremy James, Liz Aggis, Bebeto di Cidra and Cia Vicente Saez. Returning to Glasgow in 2002, she began to develop her own choreographic work creating a number of solo works in collaboration with CCA, TRAMWAY Glasgow and NRLA /New Territories festival. Since 2006 she is based mainly in Berlin and regularly tours her work to festivals and venues across Europe. In 2009 she was International associate artist at Dance Ireland in Dublin and since 2010 works in association with Dance 4 UK. Since 2007, she focuses mainly on the creation of group works in collaboration with independent dancers, musicians and visual artists. Choreographic works since 2007 include The Making of Doubt (2008, co‐produced by TRAMWAY), Musical (2009, co‐produced by NPN joint adventures Munich), I not I (2011, co‐produced by Jardin d’Europe), Variations One (2012) (on order and anarchy (co‐produced by Dance4 UK) and We are the monsters, a still in progress performance work for children (supported by Tanz Haus NRW Dusseldorf and Tanz Nacht Berlin).
