Max Burgess

Max Burgess grew up in Ngunnawal and Ngambri Country (Canberra) and started dancing at the Tuggeranong Art Centre’s Fresh Funk dance program. It wasn’t until the age of 20 that they decided to pursue training in Contemporary Dance.

Having just graduated from the New Zealand School of Dance at the end of 2021, Max has had the privilege to perform in works by Eliza Sanders, Elijah Kennar, Josh Mu, Garry Stewart’s Australian Dance Theatre, and Jeremy Beck. Max is incredibly keen to begin their choreographic journey post institutional contemporary dance training, wishing to creating works and dance spaces which have an affinity for decolonisation and queerness.
