Suzie is currently working on DEED's latest project 'Ways of Doing', which will premiere in October as part of CODA Dance Festival in Oslo. In addition Suzie will lead a seminar about working with physical change, as part of the CODA programme. In March she presented the first part of her project, a performance talk called 'Body Narratives 1' at Dansens Hus in Stockholm as part of the seminar 'Exchange Perspectives'. 


Suzie Davies is a dancer, choreographer, actor and writer from Leeds in the UK. She started her career dancing in the Monty Python film ‘The Meaning of Life’ in 1983. She has lived and worked in Scandinavia since 1992, and is based in Norway where she has lived since 1995. 

Suzie is also the Artistic Leader and Choreographer of the project-based company DEED, which she runs together with her partner Mattias Ekholm.

As a student at the London Contemporary Dance School Suzie was lucky enough to work with the choreographer and director Janet Smith. Janet had been commissioned to choreograph for Uppercut Danseteater in Copenhagen, and invited Suzie to be a part of the production. Suzie then continued to work with Uppercut for the next three years before becoming an established member of Carte Blanche in Bergen in 1995. Over nine years she enjoyed the variety a repertory company could offer and benefited from the challenge of adapting to the artistic profiles of three different directors. During this period she also worked with Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt in Oslo and JazzXchange in London.

Since 2004 Suzie has worked as a freelance artist. She has worked in many different constellations, nationally and internationally, over a broad spectrum of genres. She formed a long working relationship with one of her previous directors from Carte Blanche Karen Foss, with whom she began researching the use of text in performance. She also began working as an actor, dancer and writer with Alan Lucien Øyen’s company Winter Guests. In 2017 she co-hosted the opening of the Bergen International Festival together with Andrew Wale (Winter Guests). Suzie’s main focus remains on her own work with her company DEED, and she and Mattias are currently working on their 5th production together.

In 2010 Suzie received the Rolf Gammleng prize for her work as a dancer and for the versatility she has shown as a performer. Suzie has been employed by SKUDA since 2012.
