Isla Hurst


Isla is a dance artist who loves to explore activism and social justice within her work, and believes that both dance spaces and performances should be accessible to all. Outside Curious Motion, Isla is a founding member of Yoodaloo Dance Theatre, and Evil Alex, both of which involve blending dance with theatre to create work that challenges what contemporary dance should or shouldn’t be. She is also a member of the Learning and Participation team at Northern School of Contemporary Dance.

Isla joined Curious Motion in July 2021 as our first intern! She supports us with the ‘behind the scenes’ activity at Curious Motion, including our social media and project administration.
