Cobie Orger is an artist.

Cobie Orger is a Melbourne based dance maker, performer and video artist. She is interested in making work that examines the integration of dance with other forms explored through installation, live performance and filmmaking. These enquiries have lead to the creation of her own dance and intermedia works including Mostly in between moments (curated work for Lucy Guerin Inc’s With the lot program), Carbon to Glass© (MAYDaY! Festival, Antwerp, Belgium) and human_edit (independent season at Conical Gallery, Melbourne). She has been awarded several choreographic residencies to develop new work at places such as Cargo 103 (Lausanne, Switzerland) Bundanon (Nowra, New South Wales), Danswerkhaus (Antwerp), Ballhaus (Berlin) and Meat Market (North Melbourne). Her interest in screen dance continues to flourish after being awarded a “Foot in the door” grant from the Australia council for the Arts to work with Australian dance filmmaker Tracie Mitchell. As a result she has created a number of her own short dance films including Dryad of St. Erme, Standing Unempty, type 1.), A quiet reflection and Carbon to glass (b) most of which have each screened in local festivals and/or toured with the “Dance your socks off” and “Electrofringe” film program.
