is a dance artist from Aotearoa based in Helsinki.
Born and raised in Nagoya and Ōtautahi with Irish-Scottish ancestry, she holds the privileges of access.
She situates herself relationally and learns from being among diverse embodied perceptions.
She facilitates inclusive dance, performs in group works, leads movement courses & workshops, and makes live & video dance art. Her dance, choreographies and writing stem from collaboration and betweenness, as well as bodily interests in materiality, dreaming, and process-oriented creation.
Georgie gained her BPSA in contemporary dance from Unitec NZ in 2006, and her MA in dance pedagogy at the Helsinki University of the Arts in 2019.
She has been performing in works by choreographers in NZ, Finland & UK, and has co-created pieces across the hemispheres. She has also worked with inclusive dance companies Touch Compass (NZ) and Kaaos Company (FI) across several years.
Her dance practice is a movement that embraces difference as a uniting force in a field of learning and creative expression.
She values not-yet fully formed ideas and the life of the work in the making. She seeks to practice dialogically in spaces that support multiplicity, and the body's experience as the site for shared learning.
