Louise Ahl

Louise Ahl is a Glasgow based artist, making experimental and choreographic performance and installation work.

She creates both solo and collaborative multi-art-form pieces under the company name Ultimate Dancer. The work is centered around the metaphysical and mystical, using movement, vocals, writing and sound.

Louise was a New Associated Artist at Yorkshire Dance in 2012, a Tramway Associated Artist in 2015-16 and the recipient of the Starter Award 2017-18 through National Theatre of Scotland.

The Live Work Fund will support Louise to continue to push the field of expanded choreography, and to specifically work with the movement of sound and language. Louise will undergo training and explore new ideas for audio description in live performance, working with various vocal techniques and how to integrate sensory elements such as scent to layer the experience of choreographic material. She will also finish the writing and dissemination of 666 riddles.
