'Justine Reeve and Company' make work that reveals the diverse state of existence exploring the unhinged aspects of the human condition. There is an on-going exploration of the relationship between movement, text, music and comedy and how these forms can be used to reveal a mischievous and poignant expression. This has been revealed more recently in her irrepressible web series Smacks of Naff.
Justine Reeve has a BA (Hons) in Dance and Related Arts, PGCE (Post-16) and Post Graduate Diploma (PGDip) in Dance and Collaborative Arts. She has taught for over 24 years teaching across all age ranges as teacher, Head of Department, Director, choreographer and consultant (e.g. The BRIT School). She was an animateur with Rambert Dance Company for 10 years and her book 'Dance Improvisations' was published by Human Kinetics in 2011. Justine has been developing her choreographic voice with the support of South East Dance and Pavilion Dance South West as a past Discovery Artist. Justine was commissioned to create work for 2014 The Ignition Festival and has created work for The Brighton Festival.
