Maria Lloyd Biog


Maria Lloyd trained at the International school of Theatre Jacques Lecoq in Paris. Since then she has been creating dance films and
visual theatre. She started as a performer and specialised in poetic portraits on screen and stage. Now she is directing films. Her
experience of working extensively with teams of artists has led her to find a personal film language where art forms meet and challenge each other. Living in England for 13 years her films were commissioned and distributed by South East Dance Agency in the UK and Euroarts in Berlin. Her work was funded by Arts Council England and she won the IMZ prize in Monaco for best screen choreography. Her short films have been shown on European TV channels and screened in many international festivals. Maria is just finishing directing the British, Polish and Norwegian dance film project 'Salt'produced by Medieoperatørene as.

She is now freelance director working in Oslo. She is working on a new documentary about a blind woman dancing, and a tv series called "Inside my head".
