Biography

Oliver Sale is a freelance movement artist, spoken word poet, and aerialist living and working in the UK. Having completed his vocational training at the Rambert School in 2016, he has spent the years since touring nationally and internationally with companies such as Panta Rei Danseteater, Company Chameleon, and Autin Dance Theatre.


Alongside his company work, Oliver has developed his own creative practice, focusing on the ideas of freedom and play as an opportunity to reveal deep truth in movement. Through platforms such as Rambert’s ‘The Playground’, and the Irish Aerial Creation Centre’s ‘Creative Intensive’ Oliver has produced a number of works that have been praised for their openness, honesty, and unique creative voice.


Oliver also commits to the daily study of Tarot, and through his affinity for serious play, has found a wonderful new freedom in the art of tree climbing.
