Aurora Westfelt is a Malmö-based dance artist, educator and activist from Stockholm. She has a degree in modern and contemporary dance from Outokumpu dance education in Finland and has danced contact improvisation for over 17 years. Throughout her movement work she has explored the intimate relationship between audience and artist in improvised solo performances in various ways.
Aurora has taught dance to people from 3 years of age to adulthood in various contexts and has led a number of courses and workshops in contact improvisation. She has organized four Radical Contact meetings (a project that brings together contact provision and body politics) and uses her knowledge of body and identity, norms and oppression in her dance teaching and art.
