Prize-winning choreographer and dancer Phoebe Jewitt was born in the UK, and grew up travelling in Southeast Asia and in Switzerland. Phoebe obtained her Bachelor in Contemporary Dance at Zürich University of the Arts, and during this time was two-time winner of the Migros Kulturprozent award as well as finalist in the Swiss Youth Research competition.
Phoebe began creating work professionally during her career as a dancer at Tanz Luzern. She won the Copenhagen Choreography Competition in 2021, alongside further awards that same year. She founded her own company; ‘PITT Company’ in 2021 and has since been touring her creations nationally and internationally. Alongside her work with PITT, Phoebe has most recently created work for Tanz Luzern, Brückerei and the Luzern State Arts Award Ceremony. Phoebe’s movement style and approach to choreography stem from an interest in cognitive and social psychology. She is driven by an intrigue in human nature and how we function as individuals, how our environment affects us and how we affect the space and community around us.
