Angela Goh is an Australian dancer and choreographer. She is working with dance in theatres, galleries, and telepathetic spaces. Her work is situated between a criticality of history and a paranoia about the future, with a tender attentiveness to the body as a vehicle for reimagining intimacy, care and power, to reorient towards imaginative modes of being and worlding.
Angela’s works have been presented across Australia and internationally, most recently at Baltic Circle Festival (FIN), PS122/Performance Space New York’s Coil Festival (USA), Auto Italia South East (UK), Liveworks Festival (AUS), Artspace Sydney (AUS), Filmwinter Stuttgart (DE), Perth Institute of Contemporary Art (AUS), Campbelltown Arts Centre (AUS), the Asia-Pacific Triennial of Performing Art, The Judson Church (USA), among others, and presented by Galerie (int) at La Biennale de la Danse (Lyon); Jan Mot Gallery (Brussels); Dansehallerne (Copenhagen); Menagerie de Verre (Paris); and Saal Biennial (Tallin).
Angela has been artist in residence at Tanzhaus Zurich (CH), Cite Internationale des Arts (FR), Critical Path (AUS), Arts House Melbourne (AUS), Bundanon Artist Trust (AUS), Rimbun Dahan (MY), Dance Nucleus (SNG).
