Tshedzom Tingkhye

Tshedzom Tingkhye is a first-generation Tibetan multidisciplinary artist who specializes in

dance performance, choreography, and cinematography. She is a graduate from the Boston

Conservatory at Berklee where she was a recipient of the Julie Thompson Memorial

Scholarship and alumni award winner for Highest in Academic Achievement.

 

Originally from Seattle, Washington, Tshedzom grew up a homeschooler and had an

independently lead education in various arts including Tibetan music, classical music,

dance, theater, and visual arts. She began dancing at The Creative Dance Center with Anne

Green Gilbert where she explored modern techniques, improvisation, partnering, and

composition. She was a member of Kaleidoscope Dance Company for 7 years and worked

with a plethora of choreographers including Jim Coleman, Marlayna Locklear, Wade

Madsen, and Ellie Sandstrom. As a young adult, Tshedzom explored the larger Seattle

dance scene and performed with local companies including The Three Yells with Veronica

Lee-Baik and Beautiful Carcass with Maya Soto + Nico Tower. After receiving her

Associates degree, Tshedzom pursued her BFA in Contemporary Dance Performance at The

Boston Conservatory at Berklee.

 

At the Conservatory, she worked with notable artists including Robert Moses’ Kin, Juel D.

Lane, Edisa Weeks, and Urban Bush Women. In her undergraduate studies, Tshedzom took

interest in Dance Theatre, Cunningham, contemporary, codified modern techniques, and

dance technology. As a result of the pandemic, she found film as a means to create in

isolation and developed a new passion for this medium. She created a diverse collection of

dance films in which she explored various ways of maintaining focal balance between

editing composition, choreography, and movement of the camera. This discovery led her to

produce her senior thesis project, “a gallery of ཐུན་མཚམས།”, an evening-length

interdisciplinary work that combined dance film, live performance, and interactive set.

 

Tshedzom’s choreography has been presented at Henry Purcell Society of Boston,

Kaleidoscope Dance Company, TibetFest, Tibet Film Festival, and the Boston Conservatory

at Berklee. Her practice continues to evolve while maintaining roots in her Tibetan culture,

activism, and relationship with nature. Tshedzom is a member of Motlee Party and a part

of Boston Early Music Festival’s Dance Ensemble. Based between Seattle and Boston,

Tshedzom grows a body of repertoire while actively performing across coasts.
