Georgia Van Gils grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney committed to a very physical upbringing. In 2015, Georgia began her training at the New Zealand School of Dance for three years where she was fortunate enough to perform works including, ‘Political Mother’ by Hofesh Shechter, ‘Forgotten Things’ by Sarah Foster-Sproull, ‘Incant’ an all female work by Amber Haines, and ‘The Bach’ by Michael Parmenter. During her second year of training, Georgia was involved in Iratxe Ansa’s Metamorphosis Residency in Spain; where they performed at the Bilbao Guggenheim Museum and the Teatro Victoria Eugenia. After graduating in 2017, Georgia has performed in Rushes, created by Malia Johnston, in the NZ International Arts Festival and a House of Sand production, ‘Fear of Eggs’, in the Wellington Fringe Festival. In 2018, Georgia was a part of a choreographic collaboration with two other dance artists, developing their first short work Meeting 1, in an Auckland Festival.
