Georgia Van Gils

Company Artist

Georgia Van Gils is a dynamic Australian movement artist, honing her contemporary skills at the New Zealand School of Dance, where she graduated in 2017. Since then, she has been on an exhilarating journey, collaborating with renowned choreographers and companies across Australia and abroad.

Her dance ventures include experiences with Leg’s on the Wall, STRUT Dance, CO3 Company, Stephanie Lake, Catapult Dance Company, and more. Georgia's performances have presented in festivals such as the Perth Festival, where she performed in the the re-staging of Hofesh Shechter’s ‘tHE bAD’ in 2020, The Farm’s beachfront work ‘Ninth Wave’ in 2022 and Crystal Pite’s '10 Duets on a Theme of Rescue’ in 2023. Georgia’s other performance highlights include Tanja Liedtke’s ‘Construct’, Kristina Chan’s new work ‘Brightness’ and Kimberley Parkin’s ‘Cry Baby’.
Her intense desire for collaboration and site-specific performances is a driving force behind her artistry, manifesting in a self-practice that experiments with intricately weaving spatial design, audience experience, and theatricality. Beyond the stage, Georgia extends her passion to teaching, where her classes centre on finding body awareness within space, both individually and collectively. In her classes, a lively playlist spanning the decades creates a fun, upbeat atmosphere where participants explore set phrases and improvisational activities.
