Ash Bee

Choreographer

Ash Bee has a diverse range of choreographic interests and experience spanning contemporary dance, musical theatre, jazz and performance art. Having completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance in 2008, Ash has gone on to choreograph for The Lunch Hour (Siren Theatre Company), A Midsummer Night’s Dream, A Winter’s Tale (Shakespeare on the Green) and 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Squeaky Floor Productions).

Ash is also the founder of Blonde Ambition, a contemporary dance trio with a feminist performance art agenda. For this her choreography explores a vocabulary of quotidian gesture, contemporary dance and grotesque theatricality. Referencing a range of symbols including Barbie, the Hitchcock blonde and Playboy bunny, her work with Blonde Ambition also employs gender signifiers to investigate the notion of a constructed beauty ideal.

Ash’s achievements with Blonde Ambition include a Responsive Residency with Critical Path (2011), Most Outstanding Choreography Award (Short, Sweet + Dance 2009), You Are Here Festival (2011) and the Sydney Fringe Festival (2010). Her original short work was selected for remount in the inaugural season of Shorter + Sweeter Dance (2011).

Ash was the choreographer for Castor & Pollux (2012).
