Amrita Hepi is an award-winning First Nations choreographer and dancer from Bundjulung (Aus) and Ngāpuhi (NZ) territories. Her mission as an artist is to push the barriers of intersectionality in form and make work that establishes multiple access points through allegory. Her work is characterised by hybridity and engages in extending choreographic practices by combining dance and movement with other domains such as visual art, language and participatory research. Her work has taken various forms (film, performance, sculpture, text, lecture, participatory installation), but always begins with the body as a point of archive, memory, dance and resistance. Amrita has worked with leading Australian dance companies and choreographers such as Marrugeku, Force Majeure, The Western Australian Indigenous Dance company (Ochres) Melanie Lane, Bhenji Ra and Victoria Chiu. She trained at the National Aboriginal Islander Skills Development Association (NAISDA) Dance College and Alvin Ailey American Dance School, New York. Amrita has been an artist-in-residence at BANFF Centre for the Arts Canada, ACE OPEN in South Australia, and PACT Sydney.
