Tony Tran

Artist

Tony Tran (b. 1988) is a Norwegian choreographer and dancer based in Oslo. Graduating from the Oslo National Academy of Arts and The Danish National School of Performing Arts in 2012, he has since developed performances of his own, work that links universal topics of power, politics, identity and memory.

Tran is particularly drawn to collaborations across art forms, such as with Norwegian and Sami filmmaker/visual artist Andreas Daugstad Leonardsen. Among other collaborators are: Heine Avdal, Karen Nikgol, Alexandra Pirici etc. At the time of writing he is at the tail end of 2-month tour with Schismogenesis, a work exploring how power and the lack thereof shapes relationships, performing for youth across central and northern Norway.

Currently he is developing the interdisciplinary performance Encryption, set to premiere in March 2018.
