Elise Nuding is an artist-researcher working with dance and choreography.
“At present my research is composed of three strands: an exploration of the human body as an entangled entity; intersections between writing and dance; and improvisation in/as performance. At times these strands overlap and at times they diverge, and the research unfolds through studio exploration, workshops/open lab sessions, verbal dialogue, and critical/reflective writing. Throughout this, I continue to be inspired by the intelligence, vulnerability, and unpredictability of the dancing body.
Originally from the UK, I started working professionally in 2010 and have been based in Sweden since 2015. In addition to performing and making dance both individually and collaboratively, I write reflectively and critically—both about my own practice and about the wider constellation of dance practices I encounter—and my writing has been published in a range of academic journals and independent/artist-led publications. I hold an MA with Distinction from London Contemporary Dance School and BA in Archaeology from Brown University. I have an active and evolving pedagogic practice, teaching in contexts spanning higher education, professional training, and a variety of other settings. I have taught regularly at University of the Arts, Stockholm (formerly DOCH) and Balettakademien Stockholm, and am currently a lecturer in dance at the University of Gothenburg.”
