Graham is a British choreographer based in Sweden. Educated at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, England. He went on to tour with a number of UK and international dance companies including Tavaziva Dance, Ace Dance, Marc Brew Company and State of Emergency amongst others. He is currently a permanent company member of Skånes Dansteater.
His choreographic credits include new creations for Skånes Dansteater (Sweden), Kannon Dance (Russia), Dan Daw Creative Projects (UK/Australia), Eurovision and personal projects, which have been performed in Sweden and Russia.

In 2013 Graham choreographed for the opening ceremony of the Eurovision Song Contest held in Malmö, Sweden and in 2014 he created The Modern Condition to critical acclaim. Its sequel and Murmuration Dance Theatre production, On One Condition will premiere in September 2015 at Skanes Dansteater, Sweden.
Adey’s choreographic works are first and foremost about people. Interested in the stories that bring a particular dancer to where they are in time and space, he challenges social norm in ways that provokes audiences to both confirm and question their own beliefs.
Graham is the Choreographer for ‘On One Condition’, collaboration between Dan Daw Creative Projects and Murmuration.
