Madeline Edwards has worked internationally as an independent dancer, choreographer and teacher. Since her graduation from Adelaide College of the Arts, she has worked as a performer and Assistant Choreographer for Daniel Jaber. In 2010, Madeline was granted the opportunity by Carclew Youth Arts and The Helpmann Academy to travel to Malaysia to participate in a 3-month residency at Rimbun Dahan, for the creation and performance of Jaber’s W.G Spiel.

She won the Ausdance SA Outlet Dance Award and received an Arts SA Professional Development Grant to travel to Vienna to attend ImPulsTanz, where she studied William Forsythe’s Improvisation Technologies under ex-Ballett Frankfurt’s Francesca Harper and Tony Rizzi, and was selected to perform Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre repertoire in the closing ceremony. Madeline co-choreographed and was featured in a dance film project with filmmaker Gemma Salomon.
