keywords: filmmaker, choreografe, movement director, casting

Choreographer and Dance film maker, based in Amsterdam. Originally from Malmö, Sweden, where she trained extensively to become a professional dancer, she later moved to Zürich, Switzerland and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. In 1999 she graduated from the Amsterdam University of the Arts, to which she returned to obtain her Master in Choreography and New Media(predominantly working with video) in 2006.

Nicola Hepp has a fascination for movement, whether it is the moving body or moving images. She has often worked with live or pre-recorded video in her dance performances. For those projects, she choreographed and directed both the live dance and what was being projected on screen. Since 2013 her main focus is dance film making. Her short films Echo, Walk, Songs of the Underworld, Home and The Double have been shown in festivals around the world and have received several nominations and awards.

Nicola alternates between her own projects and collaborating on commissioned work. Among other productions, she has created the choreography for the stageplay Macbeth, directed by Jesper Hall, the dutch telefilm Get Lost! directed by Mirjam de With and the feature film Jackie & Oopjen, directed by Annemarie van de Mond. She also did choreography and movement direction for short films and commercials such as Parallel, dir: Ellen Blom ( premiering at Nederlands Film Festival 2019), When we were strangers, dir: Ayla Spaans ( part of De Ontmoeting), Amsterdam Open Air Festival moodfilm by Jacob Dijker/ Monaerk and Museumnacht promotion clip by Kay Lindhout/ Czar Amsterdam.
