Olivia Edginton (NO)

Dance artist, performer and choreographer based in Oslo. Olivia is dedicated to the practice of performance and this work has taken her to international stages in both independent and dance company environments. Notably with Candoco Dance Company 2017-22, she performed the work of makers: Jeanine Durning, Yasmeen Godder, Trisha Brown Company, Jerome Bel, Eun Me Ahn, and Jo Bannon. Olivia collaborates as a performer/choreographer in other contexts in mixed-media environments, most recently in Switzerland with River Being (2022). She studied Contemporary Dance (BA) at Laban 2012-15, and has an MA in Dance Performance, Laban 2015/16. The practice of performance and the labour of the dancer is her main motivation and fire. Olivia wants to build and be exposed to more performative experiences, to work in the material of the dancing performing body.
