Molly Nyeland is a dance artist and teacher from Denmark. Her foundation for work is within contemporary dance and centered around improvisation and instant composition. Alongside her creative work she carries a teaching practice and is currently studying at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen. Working with courage, curiosity and the empowerment to say yes and no in her dancing, as well as living, is fundamental to her practice. She understands the bodymind as the way to engage with the world and sees dancing and moving as a way of training how to relate and communicate with other beings. How are beings bodily relating to oneself and other beings? How are beings bodily communicating with each other? When and how are presence and attention tactile? She sees contact improvisation as an opportunity to dive into (to her) important skills of being a responsible human being. Inspirational teachers for her practice include Nita Little, Anya Cloud, Charlie Morrissey, Dorte Bjerre Jensen, Andrew Harwood, Jori Snell.
