ABOUT

Harrison Ritchie-Jones is a independent dancer, choreographer and filmmaker based  in Naarm (Melbourne)

Harrison’s  choreographic  practice celebrates dance and is fuelled by a curiosity in techniques from a range of physical practices. Upskilling and blending forms, he uses dance to carve out spaces for absurdity, humor and physical virtuosity to work together in surreal and expressive explorations of storytelling.

His work has a sense of celebrating movement, authenticity, obsession, determination, & risk.
