Evvie Allison

Evvie Allison is a New York City-based dance artist, teacher, and artist advocate. Her work takes the performance and performers themselves as subjects, using choreography, technology, and text to explore power, authorship, and spectatorship in contemporary dance.

Her work has been presented by Danspace Project (DraftWork), Gibney (Work Up), Movement Research at the Judson Church, and Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; featured as a critic’s pick on NOWNESS; and supported by residencies at the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography, PLAYA, Tofte Lake Center, and Chez Bushwick, among others. Allison co-founded Dance Artists’ National Collective, a group of freelance dancers organizing for safe, equitable, and sustainable working conditions. Her writing has appeared in Dance Magazine and Critical Correspondence. She holds an MFA in Dance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and teaches Pilates at the American Ballet Theatre Studio Company and JKO School.
