Julia Harvie graduated from UNITEC in 2003 with a BPSA in Contemporary Dance. Julia’s Practice involves multi-disciplinary collaborations, civic engagement, architecture and improvisation. She tends towards challenging dominant power structures through non-theatrical settings which led to richer consideration of audience perspective, the female body as a powerful political site. Her work has toured throughout New Zealand and has been presented in Taiwan and Australia.
She has been awarded Most Outstanding Performer of the NZ Fringe, Best Dance at the Dunedin Fringe and Listener's NZ Best Female Contemporary Dancer in 2008. Julia has worked for a wide range or New Zealand's foremost choreographers. In recent years she has presented Elephant Skin with Footnote in 2016, Nesticity in FESTA 2016, Democratic Ensemble for CoCA, Xenaxis Oresteia at the Christchurch Arts Festival 2017. She was a guest artist at Dance in Vancouver in November last year and is looking forward to performing in RUSHES at the NZ International Arts Festival.
