Si Rawlinson is a British East-Asian hip-hop dancer and choreographer. He is a Resident Artist at Curve Theatre and a lecturer at De Montfort University in Leicester, as well as artistic director of the dance company Wayward Thread, which was created in 2016.
His work has been performed at leading venues like Sadler’s Wells, Royal Festival Hall, and The Place among many others, and he has worked with acclaimed artists like Gary Clarke, Alesandra Seutin, Requardt and Rosenberg, and Akram Khan with People Dancing.
His company Wayward Thread is rooted in break (breakdance), using hip-hop styles, contemporary dance, physical theatre and spoken word to explore compassion, identity, and our dissonant relationship with a rapidly changing world. His new theatre show 'Hand Me Down' traces stories between four dancers and their parents, reconciling a mixed heritage of part-coloniser and part-colonised, showing at The Place Oct 22nd this year.
