Fabian Jackson is a Candoco Dance Company apprentice through the Postgraduate Apprenticeship scheme at Northern School of Contemporary Dance.

Fabian grew up in Norfolk, but has spent the last four years living in Leeds and training at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, where he gained a first class degree. He has joined Candoco Dance Company for the 2018/19 season as an apprentice dancer and will return to NSCD to complete his MA in Contemporary Dance Performance next July.

Most recently he has worked with artist, Hetain Patel, in June 2018, on the creation and performances of 10 Things I Hate About Dick. As well as the research and performance of Maxine Doyle’s Bric a Brac Baby as part of the b12 dance festival in Berlin, 2017 and performed a duet choreographed by Catarina Carvalho as the result of an NSCD and Studio Wayne McGregor commission for Leeds Light Night, 2017. Whilst at Northern, Fabian has worked with choreographers Avatara Ayuso, Suzie Davies and Mathias Ekholm (DEED) and Tiia Ourilla.

He also spent December of 2017 as an apprentice dancer for Abhilash Ningappa’s Play Practice Residency in Bangalore, researching a programme of Instant Composition, Kalaripayattu, Yoga, Odyssey and Contact Improvisation with Irene Sposetti.

Fabian’s interests are routed in movement research, improvisation and dance theatre. As part of personal and professional developments, he has worked with Theo Clinkard, Ben Duke, Anton Lachky and Hagit Yakira in a residency or intensive context, raising new questions to inform his practice.
