With a background in contemporary dance, Ula Sickle crosses disciplines, drawing from the visual arts and contemporary music, favoring a choreographic approach to movement as well as work on perception and reception, specific to the living arts.


Her quest for an alternative to the contemporary dance canon has led her to seek out performers who embody other histories of movement. She seeks forms of choreographic writing where the cultural coding and political power of "popular" dance can be revealed, where the musicality and materiality of the body itself can take center stage.


Ula studied at the University of Toronto and Paris VIII, before attending the P.A.R.T.S. research and training studio in Brussels and the Fresnoy.
