Viv Moore is one of Toronto’s most beloved dance and theatre artists, whose eccentric journey in contemporary dance has led her through English music hall, clog and butoh, amongst many other forms. Born in England, Viv trained in ballet from the age of four, then later in national folk dance, social dance, jazz and modern. She teaches creative movement, contact improvisation and social dance at Humber College.


Viv has curated Nuit Blanche for Dance Ontario in the Distillery District, and acted as curator and macro-choreographer for 60×60. She is the recipient of a Harold, the Paula Citron fFIDA Award and several Dora nominations.


Ongoing research into her culture, dances and spiritual traditions led her to receive an MA in dance and an invitation to explore and perform clog in a contemporary form with Kerry Fletcher in London, England at EFDSS (English Folk Dance & Song Society). She also received a Chalmers Arts Fellowship to pursue further study and research in English clog and step dance, whip work, archery, knife and tomahawk throwing, and butoh.


Her project Worcestershire Saucy is inspired by an eclectic mix of theatre, dance, English music hall, stage combat and butoh.
