ABOUT SASKIA ELLIS
Saskia is a queer, neurodiverse performance artist and choreographer, currently based on Gadigal Land. Their practice presently inquires of illimitable orthogonality and curvilinear time in poetic physiological encapsulations. Saskia pertains a multidisciplinary approach to accessibility and intersectionality through inquisitive emulations of language, movement, improvisation, installation, and theoretical embodiment. Saskia’s most recent choreographic works include “flesh concealing scaffolds of dreams” in uNCOILEd eXposed 2022, and “Spoons” via The Flying Nun by BrandX, for Sydney World Pride.
Saskia graduated Sydney Dance Company’s Pre Professional Year in 2021, and has since performed, collaborated, and choreographed works amongst Museum of Contemporary Art, Carriageworks, Riverside Theatres, IPAC, BrandX, ReadyMade, March Dance, MerrigongX, and in movement, film and tangibility.
