Tyra Wigg (*1989) is a dancer, performer and choreographer from Sweden. She studied dance at Balettakademien Stockholm and choreography, dance theory, music theory and mime acting, at Stockholm Uniarts.

Tyra immerses herself in movement practices that  focuses on fascia release and reinforcement of the endless capacity of kinaestetic awareness. With a base in these practices she develops choreographic and theatrical frameworks in which she invetigate connections between sentient awarneness, feminist perspectives and sustainability. With an urgency to empathically and cognitively connect with her audience, she transforms the stage into a collective contemplative space that breaks away from the competitive neo-liberal society.

Since 2017 Tyra is performing in the internationally touring piece CROWD by Gisèle Vienne, and 2018-2019 in Everything that Happened and Would Happen by Heiner Goebbels. Previously she  has been collaborating and performing in a wide range of contexts with artists such as Marina Abramovic, Olof Runsten, Éva Mag, Alexandra Pirici, Adele Essle Zeiss, Marie Fahlin, Dorte Olesen, Anna Källblad/Helena Byström, Virpi Pahkinen and  Stefan Metz. 

In December 2019 Tyra premiered her choreographic project NAPS at Weld in Stockholm. NAPS is a collaboration with musicians Siri Jennefelt and Aram Abbas. During spring 2020 she developed the solo “middle time” by recycling an recontextualizing material from NAPS.
