Ellen Furey is a choreographer based in Montreal working in experimental and contemporary dance forms.
Since 2012, she’s mostly involved in collaborative, discursive processes that insist on a mess of subjectivities. Her work uses potentials of dance virtuosities and performer type showmanship as material for living, oblique rebellion, and debate, entangled with heavy ambiguity. She works with, for, and alongside independent artists including Dana Michel, Malik Nashad Sharpe, Andrew Tay, Christopher Willes, and Simon Portigal and has performed in choreographies by Daniel Léveillé, Frédérick Gravel, Marten Spangberg (SE), Tina Tarpgaard (DE), Sasha Kleinplatz and Clara Furey. Ellen is a 2014 recipient of a DanceWeb scholarship, ImpulsTanz, Vienna, was a part of mobile academy-Berlin’s Copycat Academy 2015, and is currently a part-time, independent student at Concordia University. Her work has been presented in France, Canada, and the UK.
