I dance. I create dances. I facilitate for dance to happen. I collaborate. I produce work.
I work with live performance and film.
I simply love it.
I share my knowledge as much and as often I can.
I travel. I see. I change. I listen. I play.
Mostly I improvise.
I care and take action, for my work and my environment.
I do it for myself, for you, for them, for us.
Matilda Bilberg was born in Västerås, Sweden, and is now based in Stockholm. She did her dance studies at the Royal Swedish Ballet school followed by courses in choreography, dance, film and philosophy at Stockholm Uniarts.
She is working as a freelance dancer and has danced for a.o. Live art collective MELO, Satoshi Kudo, Linda Forsman, Helena Davidsson Nordelius, Tove Skeidsvoll and Julia Kraus Dybeck. Matilda also creates her own work, collaborating with the artist ionnalee for her audiovisuals and live concerts of the album Everyone Afraid To Be Forgotten (2017/2018). Together with the composer Torbjörn Grass she made the piece Spår Av Tid (2015) for Västmanlandsmusiken, as well as the site specific installation Karmansbo (2019).
Since 2018 Matilda has been collaborating with Jenna Hendry (CH). The two of them share an interest in the phenomenon of touch in the context of dance. Striving for authenticity and equality between non-performance and performance, both are fascinated by the potential of communication through the physical body. In November 2019 they premiered their first dance piece together: I U M I, co.produced by Fabriktheater Rote Fabrik in Zürich, Switzerland.
Besides her artistic work she is sharing her knowledge by teaching in dance, improvisation and contemporary floor work methods. She has been practicing with teachers such as David Zambrano, Stephen Rappaport, Linda Forsman and Bo Arenander who have influenced her work a lot.
Matilda has studied sports psychology and is a Thai Massage practitioner, educated at the Thai Massage School of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
