Sean Hilton

Sean Nguyen-Hilton is an artist, choreographer and teacher working in Atlanta. His work spans across genres, including stage work, musicals, installation and nontraditional spaces. He engages movement and the physical nature of things. His process is fueled by textures and the amorphous nature of living, as well as the observation of non-human structures and how their architectures can inform deeper understanding of the body.

Locally, Sean Nguyen-Hilton’s work has been presented at the Human Rights Campaign Gala, Atlanta Ballet’s Wabi Sabi, Atlanta Ballet’s Fellowship Ensemble, Museum of Contemporary Art GA and The High Museum of Art. He is also the Co Artistic Director of Fly on a Wall, an idea house that presents and supports innovative performance.

In 2015 Sean was a Walthall Fellow through the Atlanta arts organization WonderRoot and a Hambidge Center for Creative Arts and Sciences Distinguished Fellow with Fly on a Wall. In 2016 ArtsATL said “Sean Hilton has emerged as one of the city's leading choreographers.” The same year, he was an Idea Capital Grant winner with Fly on a Wall.
