Aoibhinn O’Dea is a choreographer and dance artist working across the contemporary dance and visual arts field. She trained in contemporary dance and somatic movement in Berlin (Tanzfabrik, Marameo, Katapult and Ponderosa), and graduated with a BA in Fine Art Sculpture (NCAD) and  MA in Dance and Performance (The Irish World Academy). Her practice is often site-specific and public, exploring the effects normative social structures have on the body. Through dance she seeks to challenge the societal expectations around human interaction and behaviour.

She teaches inclusive dance workshops across Ireland and collaborates with an array of multidisciplinary artists, underpinning an interest in making dance and performance more accessible to a wider audience. To date, her work has been supported by Light Moves, VISUAL, Carlow Arts Festival, Dance Limerick, UL Concert Hall, TBG, The Complex, IMMA, Dance Ireland, Dublin Fringe Festival, Glastonbury, Electric Picnic, Altogether Now, among other venues and festivals.

To date she has choreographed works such as Start from 0, Ancient Body (2023), Cruinniú na nÓg Carnival Parade (2022), Game Changer (2020), The World Outside (2020), Lord Hear Us (2020) and Why Knots (2019).
