Born in Poland based in France, Ola Maciejewska (1984) is an artist, dancer and choreographer. Her choreographic works are distinguished for strong interdisciplinary take on dance, based on research and controlled structural work.

She was a guest teacher at HEAD School of Art and Design - Geneva, École Nationale Supérieure d'Art - Limoges, and Centre National de la Danse - Pantin during Camping, sharing her artistic research and practice in the frame of masterclasses.
