Ula Sickle (CA/PL) is an artist and choreographer based in Brussels. From a background in contemporary dance, she works across disciplines and often in dialogue with the visual arts and contemporary music.

Performing Arts Research and Training Studios in Brussels and Film and New Media at Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains.
