Emilie Leriche is an award-winning American-born dancer, now based in Sweden with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
Her career has travelled her many places, and built her many homes. Following two years in their second company, Leriche spent four years dancing with the main company of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. Leaving her home and community in Chicago to move across the sea provided a needed reset and shift, and carried the important lesson that ‘Home’ can be so many places and with so many people.
Over her years in Sweden, she has felt herself drawn towards creation, towards the tender place we all go as artists when we decide to build and explore something new. It is what she loves most about dance and choreography: their ability to reveal the deeper, human qualities that are within us and connect us. Over the past year, these creativities have expressed themselves through film, and directing, paired with the beautiful realization that -together- they possess the ability to magnify the intimacy of choreography; the camera acting as another dancer/ another participant to the scene.
