Independent dance artist. For the past four decades has practiced, taught and advocated for explorative methods of dance making. Performs solo and collaborative work internationally, many of her collaborations involving links across the arts. She was a member of the Trisha Brown Dance Company (1979-85) and continues to teach through the company education program in NY and elsewhere. Her performance work and her teaching are informed by Release and improvisational methods, and mindful body practices, including the Alexander Technique (certified teacher), Ideokinesis, Taiji/Qigong, and Yoga. All engender trust in the body's innate capacity for ease, efficiency and integrated openness. Current projects and performances include Promenade, a series of improvised durational performance/installations with visual artist Chris Crickmay and composer Sylvia Hallett; and the development of on-going collaborative duets with, among others, Vicky Shick, Elena Demyanenko and Malgven Gerbes. She joins Stephanie Skura’s performance project Surreptitious Preparations for an Impossible Total Act in up-coming performances in NY. In February 2016, she presented her lecture/performance When Dance Became Movement (and Movement Became Material) at the 5th Biannual Conference of Dance Education 2016, Cologne. Through her travels, performances and teaching in both the United States and Europe, she positions herself in constant conversation with dance communities on both sides of the Atlantic.
