ABOUT GEORGIE GOATER
A dance artist, performer and pedagogue from New Zealand based in Helsinki, she has been working in the field for more than 15 years. She situates herself relationally and learns from being among diverse embodied perceptions. Her dance, choreographies and writing stem from collaboration and betweenness, as well as bodily interests in materiality, dreaming, and process-oriented creation. She gained her BPSA in contemporary dance from Unitec NZ in 2006, and her MA in dance pedagogy at Helsinki Theatre Academy in 2019. Lately, her practice includes moving with camera, place and embodied inquiry.
She has been dancing in works by various choreographers in New Zealand, Finland and the UK, and has worked with inclusive dance companies Touch Compass (NZ) and Kaaos Company (FI) over the years. She has been teaching dance for a broad range of embodied perceptions, experience and age levels for more than a decade.
