Laura Boynes

Laura Boynes is an award-winning independent dance artist, performer, choreographer, educator and movement director based in Boorloo/Perth. Laura’s practice is centered on presenting social, cultural and political happenings as they intersect with individual experience. Her practice utilises the body as metaphor and as a meeting point for investigating ideas of human resilience, social responsibility, adaptability and ecological change. She uses performance as a tool to inspire critical thought and reflection on the contemporary world. She has choreographed multiple short and full-length independent works and directed large commissions for dance companies such as LINK Dance Company, CO:3 Youth Ensemble, Buzz Dance Theatre and the WA Academy of Performing Arts. Her solo work Wonder Woman created with Adelina Larsson and Julie-Anne Long (2019) was nominated for four PAWA Awards and won the Australian Dance Award for Independent Dance in 2020. Her latest work Equations of a Falling Body premiered as part of the Perth Festival 2023.
