Born and raised in Hong Kong, London based dance artist Ivy Tsui (she/her) considers performing, performance-making, video-making, and writing as her major creative medium. She believes dance is a practice of connection, understanding, and empathy, seeking to re-embody and extend its meaning. Ivy’s works look at the dynamic interplay and coexistence between  bodily sensation, motion, memory, language, life and identity.


Since 2020, Ivy has been contributing to the column Choreo-Word-Graphy in Dance Journal/hk. She extends her understanding of movement, archiving, and the relationship between tangible and intangible materials to respond to dance works and moving images through embodied practice and choreographic thinking.


Ivy received commissions from Hong Kong Arts Festival, Hong Kong Dance Company, and Hong Kong Leisure and Cultural Services Department. Her dance pieces and moving images showcased at festivals across the globe, including China, the United Kingdom, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, Norway, Ireland, and Estonia. Her bookstore/library-specific dance, QuanQuan (2012), was awarded The Pick of Fringe at the Stockholm Fringe Festival 2018, and her recent moving image My Life as a Dancer? - Chapter 2 (2021) was screened at Jumping Frames 2022, Multiplé Dance Festival 2023, and Light Moves Festival 2023. In 2015, She was honoured with the Award for Young Artist (Dance) at the Hong Kong Arts Development Awards. She also participated as one of the exchange artists in Creative Meeting Point: Hong Kong x Finland 2017-2019, a program curated by the West Kowloon Cultural District, Hong Kong.


Ivy completed her Master of Fine Arts with Distinction in Creative Practice: Dance Professional at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in 2023, supported by the Gill Clark Bursary - Leverhulme Arts Scholarship. Prior to this, she completed a First Class Honors Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in 2009, supported by the Disney Scholarship.

Ivy is a Mental Health First Aider, professional cat-sitter and passionate about sewing and clothing alteration. She is also an amateur Erhu player, having recently joined The MuSeed as a percussionist.
