‘I work with my body and am trusted with the body of others. Within this, it’s taught me a lot about the dynamics that exist between a person’s personal, and how it interfaces with the universal.’

Amrita Hepi is an award-winning First Nations choreographer and dancer from Bundjalung country (Australia) and Ngāpuhi (New Zealand) territories. Her work emcompasses film, performance, sculpture, text, and installation to explore memory, resistance, and intersectionality. In 2018, she was the recipient of the People’s Choice Award for the Keir Choreographic Award and was named one of Forbes Australasia’s ’30 under 30′. She’s spent much of this year touring her work across Australia, Europe, and North America.
