Personal Brief

Grace Nicol is a choreographer, producer and academic. She has recently been interviewed for publications such as Dazed Beauty, 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. Grace is the founder and Artistic Director 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 lectures for Universities and mentoring for female artists most recently working with Falmouth University and on the MA programme at ArtEZ. Grace’s choreographic 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. grace-nicol.com
