Eva Karczag

Independent dance artist. Since the early 1970s, practices, teaches, and advocates for explorative methods of dance making, she currently performs solo and collaborative work. Danced with the Trisha Brown Dance Company from 1979–85. Her teaching experience spans the range of major colleges, studios and organizations throughout the U.S., Europe and Australia, to private practice and individual mentoring. A certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, she holds an MFA (Dance Research Fellow) from Bennington College, VT. Recent performing includes dancing in Stephanie Skura’s Surreptitious Preparations for an Impossible Total Act; Elena Demyanenko and Erika Mijlin’s Echo Archive; Elsewhere, a duet with Daniele Albanese; and Promenade, a series of improvised durational performance/installations with visual artist Chris Crickmay and composer Sylvia Hallett. Her work is informed by improvisation and mindful body practices which engender trust in the body's innate capacity for ease, efficiency and integrated openness. The New York post-modern dance movement of the 1960's and 70’s has given her current dance practice a foundation of respect for the moving body, and a passion for creative process and experimentation.
