Helen Hall

Helen is a dance artist based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. As someone with sight loss Helen is curious as to how her experience of interacting with the world around may differ from others. It is this curiosity of the margins, and telling untold stories that intrigues her and often finds voice in her work. Helen creates and produces her own work which has been performed in many festivals. She was recently commissioned by University of Atypical to produce, ‘Collecting Moments’; showcased at Bounce 2021. In 2017, she received an Unlimited commission to create, ‘Inside The Speaker’. This has been included in many festivals; most recently, The Belfast Children’s Festival 2020. As well as creating her own performance work, she regularly collaborates with many Belfast based arts organisations to devise and delivers performance-based projects. One such organisation is Open Arts, where she is currently the choreographer for Luminous Soul, a contemporary dance company for dancers with disabilities.
