Antonia grove - iconograph

Antonia trained at Rambert School and went straight on to join Rambert Dance Company (1998-2003). She has also danced for The National Theatre, Random Dance, Bonachela Dance Company, The Cholmondeleys, Charles Linehan Company, New Art Club, Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre, Walker Dance Park Music, Matthias Sperling, Clod Ensemble, HeadspaceDance and Vincent Dance Theatre.

Choreographed by Antonia Grove in collaboration with 3Fall Dance Company, Iconograph was originally choreographed in a rigid grid structure due to the pandemic and explores a graph-like structure to the space. With these grids now removed, the linear structure still remains with the dancers performing on stage as if it's a canvas, painting the space with solos portraying an iconic character. These identities ranged from people like: Martin Luther King, Frida Kahlo, Marina Abramavić, Judy Garland, Quentin Tarantino, Sacagawea and David Bowie, to name a few.
