Georgia Tegou is a London-based choreographer and dancer. She studied Dance at the Greek National School of Dance (KSOT) and at the Professional Dance School “Rallou Manou” in Athens, Greece. She attained a Master of Fine Arts in Choreography with Distinction from the University of Roehampton in London, where she works as a Lecturer in Dance Professional Practice.
She approaches ‘dance-as-design’ blurring the boundaries of movement with other visual and spatial arts more readily associated with design, highlighting their interdependent relationship. Influenced by architecture, sculpture, fashion and visual arts, she uses physical motion to depict aspects of the human condition. The vocabulary is a blend of contemporary dance, visual physical theatre and performance art. Her work has been supported by Arts Council England, Onassis Stegi, Studio Wayne McGregor and others and has been presented by organisations such as Dance Umbrella, Onassis Stegi, The Place, The Old Truman Brewery, Royal Academy of Music, The Whitechapel Gallery, Athens and Epidaurus Festival, Art Night London & National Gallery, Skopje.
In 2018, she was awarded a OneDanceUK Choreographers Observership and worked with Royal Opera House movement director, Kate Flatt. In 2019, she received an Excellence in Teaching Award by the University of Roehampton and she guest Lectures widely across the UK.
Georgia, is currently an artist in residence at Somerset House Exchange spaces in London.
