Meleat Fredriksson is a dancer and choreographer, educated from The Danish National School of Performing Arts in Copenhagen. Since graduating in 2015 she has been part of danseatelier: a studio-collective consisting of 11 dance artists working with creating continuity within the freelance world and explore art-making, sharing and hosting - using multiple hierarchies. Meleat’s work often springs out of and features improvisation, rhythm, and attitude. She is currently turning into and questioning how her blackness is connected to her artwork. On the mission to duck imposed white values, standards and affirmation she wonders what happens when she places her whole (intersectional) self at the core of the research? Meleat’s work has been shown in Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and Hong Kong at festivals such as My Wild Flag 2019, Gothenburg Dance and Theatre Festival 2018, TheCarrierBag Festival 2016, Hong Kong International Choreography Festival 2016.
