Artist: Matthew Day

Matthew Day is a dancer and choreographer who works across various artistic mediums and cultural spaces and is excited by conceptual choreographic practices that are intensely physical and push the boundaries of dance and performance.

Matthew was a teenage ballroom dancing champion (Pan Pacific, 1996) and studied Dance and Performance at The University of Western Sydney (2003/2004) and the Victorian College of the Arts (2005). Matthew relocated to Amsterdam in 2006 where he worked and performed alongside students of the School for New Dance Development for three years and made his first full-length dance work Once More With Feeling with Noha Ramadan (2008). During this time he was also a founding member of the queer cabaret collective Buttkrakker. Matthew has performed with Noha Ramadan for many years under the performance alias’s of Viv and Maka presenting a vast collection of works in warehouses and theatres in many different cities across the globe.

Since returning to Australia in 2009 Matthew has had choreographic residencies at Critical Path, Legs on the Wall, Chunky Move, Campbelltown Arts Centre, Lucy Guerin Inc. and Bundanon, where he was invited to work with Deborah Hay on her Solo Commissioning Project.

Matthew is currently working on TRILOGY a series of solo works. The first installment Thousands premiered at Next Wave Festival (2010) to much acclaim and  has since been presented  at PACT (2010) centre for emerging artists Sydney and again in Melbourne at the prestigious Dance Massive festival(2011).
