Heidi came to London to study dance at The London Studio Centre in 1992. Since 1999, Heidi has co-directed H2DANCE together with Hanna Gillgren creating work as a choreographer and designer and performer of their productions. Their work sits in between performance and dance and can be characterized as interdisciplinary, often taking a humorous approach to serious subject matters.

H2 DANCE is currently developing their production Amplified Edition.   This work will tours alongside their participatory work Strangers & Others (2017), their intergenerational work Staging Ages (2015), the extended Place Prize piece DUET (2013) and their immersive voice and movement work SAY SOMETHING (2011).

Heidi has taken up residency at Dansens Hus Stockholm Sweden, Liikelaituri Tampere Finland, Multiplié dansefestival, DansiT, SEANSE, Union Scene and Scenerommet in Norway, Reykjavik Dance Festival IS, Nordic House and NES artist residency in Iceland, Dance4, Pavilion Dance, Dance East, DanceDigital, The Place Choreodrome in the UK, Devir CAPa, (Centro de Artes Performativas do Algarve) in Portugal, Taipei Artist Village in Taiwan and Gaara Dance Foundation in Kenya.

In October 2004 she won the Shrinking Cities competition (German Federal Cultural Foundation and Archplus) in Germany with the project Cow – the udder way in collaboration with Ulrike Steven (artist/architect) Gareth Morris (architect) Susanne Thomas (choreographer) Eike Sindlinger (architect) and Paul Cotter (film maker). The work was shown at DAZ (The German Architectural Centre) and Leipzig Gallery of Contemporary Arts, autumn 2005. The exhibition has since toured to New York, Detroit, Cleveland, Manchester, Dortmund and Montreal.

Heidi has delivered commissions for DanceDigital, North Kent Local Authority Arts Partnership, The Place, The Victoria & Albert and Natural History Museums in London and choreographed for students at Trinity Laban, London Contemporary Dance School, The National Centre for Circus Arts, CAT (centre for advanced training), London Metropolitan University, Dartington College of Arts, London Studio Centre and Manchester Metropolitan University.
