Olivia Davies: Contemporary Dancer

Producer/Director: Missy McIntosh

Olivia C. Davies is an Indigenous contemporary choreographer, performer and emerging curator. Her work moves through questions of identity and transition and exploring her blood memory—her ancestral DNA. “I am a vessel for teachings and ideas, thoughts, that are not only in this current modern day world, but also stories that exist in my blood memory. This ancestral memory that’s locked in our DNA, and can be unlocked in various ways. For me, its through dance.”
