Born in Oxford in 1981, Thomasin is a dance artist based in London, UK.
After completing his training at Swindon Dance and Rambert School, he performed internationally with Rambert (2003 - 2011) Russell Maliphant (2012 - 2016) and Company Chameleon (2012 - 2020). In 2009, he received a Critics’ Circle Dance Award for Outstanding Performance in Christopher Bruce’s Hush.
Further projects across dance, opera, theatre, film and poetry include National Theatre, Young Vic, Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Boris Charmatz, Alice Oswald, Royal Ballet, Royal Opera House, Merce Cunningham Trust, Candoco Dance Company and Mad Dogs Dance Theatre.

Thomasin explores improvisation in outdoor environments as a health practice and its crossover with performance. His work is also informed by Qigong, martial arts and ongoing studies in Classical Five Element Acupuncture.
