Sydney Dance Company and Create NSW are pleased to announce that Angela Goh has been named the recipient of the inaugural Beyond the Studio Fellowship.

The Beyond the Studio Fellowship, (valued at $50,000 including in-kind support), was set up to support a choreographer, dancer, producer, composer or designer, to receive $30,000 from Create NSW as they pursue intense periods of engagement with Sydney Dance Company’s artistic and administrative team over a 12-18 month period. The Fellowship is designed to support career progression and professional development towards a future leadership role in the arts industry.

Angela Goh is an Australian dancer and choreographer whose work considers the body in relationship to commodity, materiality, technology and feeling. Her works have been presented across Australia and internationally, and she has performed in the work of other artists and companies such as Marina Abramovic (USA/SRB), Branch Nebula (AUS), Chunky Move (AUS), Mette Edvardsen (NOR/BE) and Marten Spangberg (SWE).

Goh will commence work with Sydney Dance Company’s Artistic Director Rafael Bonachela and Executive Director Anne Dunn and their respective teams in July, transitioning her skills as an independent artist to those required for leadership of an established company and the dance sector. She will work on both virtual and physical creative development and learning sessions and lead projects with Sydney Dance Company’s Pre-Professional Year program students.

Angela Goh said, “I’m thrilled to take up this fellowship which is an unprecedented opportunity to expand the scope of my artistic practice through a dedicated and dynamic range of activities with Sydney Dance Company. This fellowship presents an opportunity to build meaningful, reciprocal, and enduring relationships between a major performing arts company and the independent and experimental communities that I am part of, and I am buoyed by the strength this will bring to dance in Sydney.”
