Georgia Tegou is a London-based choreographer and dancer. She approaches ‘dance-as-design’ blurring the boundaries of movement with other visual and spatial arts more readily associated with design, highlighting their interdependent relationship. Influenced by architecture, sculpture, fashion and visual art, she uses physical motion to depict aspects of the human condition. The vocabulary is a blend of contemporary dance, visual physical theatre and performance art.
Her work has been presented and supported by Arts Council England, Onassis Stegi, Studio Wayne McGregor, Dance Umbrella, The Place, The Whitechapel Gallery, Athens and Epidaurus Festival and National Gallery Skopje amongst others. She has choreographed two official music videos for dance-pop cult-favorite Róisín Murphy, ‘Plaything’ & ‘The Rumble’ as well as directing fashion editorials. She is currently a Choreodrome at The Place resident artist, an artist in residence at Somerset House Exchange spaces in London, and she has just been awarded a new Arts Council Grant for the creation of a new work in the UK. In 2021 she will be co-creating with Michalis Theophanous a performance exhibition for the Cyprus Pavilion at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition / La Biennale di Venezia.
