Meet Oh

Oh Augustine is a queer emerging contemporary dance artist/teacher/choreographer, currently based in Vancouver BC, the unceded and occupied territories of the Sḵwx w̱ ú7mesh, xʷməθkʷəy ̓əm, and səl ̓ílwətaʔ Nations. As a graduate of Modus Operandi, they have spent time in rehearsal process with Out Innerspace Dance Theatre, Shay Kuebler Radical System Art, Khoudia Toure, Chimerik 似不像 Collective, Okam’s Racer, Co.ERASGA, and Zahra Shahab among others, as well as performed in the EDAM Spring Choreographic Series in 2022. Oh’s work as a choreographer mainly focuses on neurodivergence, gender, pleasure, spirituality, and sensation, and has showcased their work in 12 Minutes Max, Boombox Split Screen, Gallery Series, The Happening Accelerate 4.0 alongside Kate Franklin, and Chalk It Up! Recently, Oh has been hired as a choreographer for a play “Chlopczyca” directed by Anais West, and is also a recipient of the TSV training scholarship in 2022.

Among a competitive pool of applications, Oh was awarded residency space at New Works within the 2023-24 season. New Works strives to build process-focused artist-lead residency space that is responsive to the creative’s need.

A New Works residency is a safe space for creative risk taking.


This season, New Works is supporting two artists with creation residencies at Q7 and Roundhouse Community Centre in partnership with Out Innerspace.
