Miranda Pennell trained in contemporary dance at the Martha Graham Centre in New York and at the SNDO in Amsterdam, before she started making films. She lives and works in London. Her award-winning dance films have attracted funding from the Arts Council England, Film London, the BBC and Channel 4. They are regularly screened at major international film festivals, and have been broadcasted in the UK and around the world. Her recent works i.e. "Human Radio" 2002, "Magnetic North" 2003, and "Fisticuffs" 2004 explore aspects of movement or choreography drawn from the world around us. Miranda Pennell currently lectures on the Post-Graduate 'Dance for the Screen' course at the London Contemporary Dance School.
