Daisy Sanders is a Perth-based independent artist, a graduate of WAAPA (2013 BA Dance, 2017 First Class Honours) and a proud company member of Sensorium Theatre. She creates, performs and produces immersive choreographic works (Status Room 2014, PACES 2015, Choice Velocity 2016, A Resting Mess 2017-20) and is a rigorous, playful artist working across a variety of cities and contexts. Daisy has a passion for arts advocacy and accessibility. As co-founder of FLOCK she facilitates caring communities of practice for artists of all disciplines. Daisy’s lived experience of illness (Endometriosis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome 2015-19) enabled her to generate a unique and enduring dance research approach: she explores sustainability in bodily and social ecologies via a somatic focus on cycles of rest, activity and waste. Daisy has worked with Geoff Sobelle (USA), Teac Damsa (Ireland), Routa Company (Finland), Jo Pollitt, Joshua Pether and Company Upstairs (WA), Alexandra Harrison and KAGE (Vic). She was a 2019 Australia Council Career Development artist, a 2017 Culture and The Arts WA Fellow and the 2009 Young Canberra Citizen of the Year.
Daisy is the selected mentee for the 2022 STRUT Dance Mentorship Program with Lucy Geurin.
