Oriah Wiersma is a Toronto based dance artist with a BFA in performance. Her career has taken her to the Tipperary International Dance Festival in Ireland, Vienna, Amsterdam, Montreal, and Winnipeg. As a choreographer she has created for R. Murray Schafer’s musical drama, The Spirit Garden, and works regularly with musicians on collaborative projects; weaving a web of her love for music into a physicalized form. Oriah’s current artistic practice looks at body and environment. She sees movement as an opportunity to connect with people in a visceral way.
