Born in Odense (1985) to a Danish mother and Ghanaian father, Louise Mochia is a Danish dancer & upcoming choreographer. After finishing a bachelor’s degree at London Contemporary Dance School (2006-2009), Louise continued to live and work in London (2009-2014), performing and touring internationally with the Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre Company (IRL). She has lived and worked in Berlin (2014-2018), before moving back home to Denmark in 2018. Louise is now based in Copenhagen (DK). Her relationship to movement is ever deepening through her continuing interest in abstract art & dance, choreography and somatic practices + modalities. In 2021 Louise Mochia founded SITKA LOUISA and is the artistic director of the company.
