Matthew Day


Choreographer | Designer | Performer

Matthew Day (1979) is interested in the potential of choreography to negotiate unorthodox relationships and propose new ways of being human. Utilizing a minimalist approach, he 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, Day was a teenage ballroom dancing champion. He studied Dance and Performance Studies in Sydney and Melbourne (2003-2005), before collaborating with students at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam (2006-2009). Day has been an artist in residence, and presented his work extensively in Australia and Europe. He is currently based between Melbourne and Amsterdam where he is undertaking the Amsterdam Masters of Choreography.
