Elise Nuding is a mover and a thinker whose creative practice includes choreography, performance, and writing. Currently working as a freelance dance artist in her home city of London, Elise holds a B.A. in Archaeology from Brown University and an M.A. in Performance and Choreography from London Contemporary Dance School. During her undergraduate studies she started performing professionally and developed an interest in the cross-overs between performance and archaeology, which form the basis for her own choreographic practice. Her research explores the relationship between place, memory and people, which manifests itself most often, but not exclusively, in site-specific performance work. Both as a performer and maker, she considers practice and theory as two sides of the same coin.
