As an artist and choreographer Mark Bleakley presents work in both dance and visual arts contexts.

Formally trained in visual art, Mark has been dancing for over 15 years as a bboy/breakdancer.  He develops compositions combining video, the body and text to explore choreographic relations between gesture, context and their affects.

Marks current work explores how we handle things; people, objects and how objects handle us through: environments, architecture, and social structures. His work asks, ‘Can the gallery and the choreographic field provide a space to present and re-examine these relations that our bodies are in constant dialogue with?’
