Grace Nicol is a choreographer, producer and academic. She has recently been interviewed for i-D Magazine, It’s Nice That and Ladybeard Magazine discussing the dance-gender debate. Her artistic practice has a particular focus on object-body relations and materiality, investigating juxtapositions and associations of objecthood and bodies to explore movement within socio-political contexts. The primary concerns of her work are place, gender and class boundaries. Due to these concerns, she often works with people of different ages and backgrounds.
Grace is the founder and producer of the performance platform, Woman SRSLY. Woman SRSLY aims to create a platform and support network for female identified and socialised female artists. To develop this practice further, Grace provides mentoring for female artists and is currently mentoring on the MA programme at ArtEZ.
Grace’s work has been shown at The Place, CentrE17, The Yard, Guest Projects, Hackney Showroom, the V & A Museum and has toured nationally and internationally, winning a Stockholm Fringe Young STOFF Award in 2015.
Her participatory work has included; The London Bubble’s ‘Creative Homes’ project with performances at the Albany, the InFlight and Diploma programmes at Wac Arts and one-off workshops at schools and universities.
Grace is currently an Associate Artist at Dance Research Studio, member of Chisenhale Dance Space and has just completed her MA in Contemporary Dance at London Contemporary Dance School.
