Personal profile

Biography

Simon Ellis is an artist and researcher working with practices of choreography, collaboration, filmmaking and dance. He was born in the Wairarapa in Aotearoa/New Zealand, but now lives in London. Simon is a Pākehā – a white person of European descent – and his ethnicity has shaped and challenged how he understands his privileges and taste. His experiences growing up in a politicised family environment nourished his curiosity about power, race, consumerism and digital technologies, and these in turn underpin much of what his research is about, and how it is conducted. Simon also thinks a lot about the ways in which humans might value things that are not easily commodified, and likes to imagine a world filled with people who are sensitive to their own bodies, and the bodies of others.
