CHOREOGRAPHER | ARTIST
Hailing from Devon and now living in London; Liv is a spirited dance artist who has created movement for the likes of Nina Nesbitt, You Me At Six & Maeve . Her work spans across stage and screen, having created touring live work for the likes of Exim Dance Company and Spindrift Dance Company, she has carved out a distinctive style and path.
In 2013 Liv was commissioned by Exim Dance Company to create live work for their UK tour, which was generously supported by the Arts Council. Olivia created 'Desiderium' a work which stirred audiences everywhere and toured until 2015. Shortly after, she created and toured 'Keel' a collaborative duet with Laura Henry (Exim Dance Co. Director). During this time she began exploring Dance on screen and met Director Chris Lake, together they devised choreography for a film 'FADE' that has been shown internationally at the Warsaw and Sofia International Film Festivals. Beyond this Liv has created live works for Spindrift Dance Company 'Rain on the last day...', Roehampton University 'RED' and Third Row Dance Company 'Beneath Sky, Above Water'.
Her live work has been performed at venues and festivals across the UK including, The Place, The House, Exeter Phoenix, Royal Festival Hall and Pavilion Dance South West. In 2015 Liv received the Young Choreographers Award for her live work ‘RED’ and became an ambassador for the Young Choreographers South West programme for 3 years.
Liv has recently choreographed a dance film titled 'WAKE' for LeMoon Productions company, featuring a diverse cast of performers, shot across rural Devon, which will be released later in 2019. She has also finished creating a BBC Arts Commission for a new dance film ‘Scapelands’ that explores the impact that our environment can have on our mental health. New Music video projects awaiting release for Nykki Music, Holly Walker and Liv East.
Liv's vocabulary is a hybrid of styles, a sort of dance chameleon, she prefers to do what feels good in her body, dance is a healer for her. Within her dancing there is a spiritual, euphoric and ancestral funk; she's an emotional mover, bedroom dancer; inspired heavily by great music and the everyday.
