Mark Baldwin was born in Lautoka, Fiji, in the South Pacific, and later raised and educated in New Zealand. Here he pursued a degree in Fine Arts at the University of Auckland, while studying both classical and contemporary dance. Mark was Artistic Director of Rambert for 15 years.


Both as a choreographer, and as an inspiring curator of others’ work, his tenacity has kept the company always growing. His strong leadership through the many tough years of getting Rambert’s fantastic new home built has been unflagging.
— Howard Panter for The Stage
Baldwin’s neoclassical choreography complements the music, but doesn’t rush to inhabit its billowing folds and baroque curlicues as Mark Morris’s or Richard Alston’s might have done... Baldwin varies his compositions skilfully, and groupings ebb, swell and flow.
— ★★★ The Guardian
