Zee Zunnur is a Singaporean Malay movement artist who was a long-term dancer with Hofesh Shechter Company (UK). She started dance training at a young age in traditional Malay dance. With her roots in Malay culture and folk art, she sheds light on the existence, richness in wisdom and strength of Southeast Asia, re-writing the stories of her ancestors to honour them as she threads through her contemporary artistic realms.

Being part of the pioneer batch at School of the Arts Singapore and danced with T.H.E. (Second) Dance Company, her love for contemporary dance brought her to London to train at London Contemporary Dance School.

Other than touring internationally as a performer and teacher with Hofesh Shechter Company, she has also been invited as a guest artist and choreographer with T.H.E. Dance Company, M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Ignition Dance Festival, Esplanade da:ns Festival Singapore, Singapore Biennale and more.

Zee is also active in the arts landscape of Australia. She has worked with the Pre-Professional Year in Sydney Dance Company, STRUT Dance, Co3 Australia, Mitch Harvey Company, James Vu Anh Pham, Brooke Leeder, Rachel Ogle, WAAPA, Fremantle Biennale, and recently co-choreographed a work alongside Marrugeku presenting it at Sydney Festival and Perth Festival 2024.
