Matthew Day (1979) is interested in the potential of choreography to negotiate unorthodox relationships and propose new ways of being human. Utilising a minimalist approach Day often works with duration and repetition approaching the body as a site of infinite potential and choreography as a field of energetic intensity and exchange.
Raised in Sydney, Matthew was a teenage ballroom dancing champion. He studied Dance and Performance Studies in Sydney and Melbourne (2003-2005), and was an unofficial squatter-student of the SNDO (2006-2009). Day has been artist in residence, and presented his work extensively in Australia and Europe. He is currently based between Melbourne and Amsterdam.
