Julie Mayo

Julie Mayo is a choreographer and teacher in New York whose performance works foreground body-level communication that is familiar, yet simultaneously intelligible and inexplicable. Julie's works hinge on the inseparability of the comic and the tragic, the ordinary and the remarkable, and the individual and the collective. She has been commissioned by individual artists for solo performance projects and teaches somatic and performance practices through Movement Research and her own teaching platform on Zoom. Mayo was a 2020-2021 Gibney DiP (Dance in Process) resident artist, a 2017-2018 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence, and a 2014-2015 New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks artist. She is the recipient of residencies at UCross Foundation, Djerassi, Yaddo, Mount Tremper Arts, Snug Harbor Cultural Center, and the Virginia Center for Creative Arts. Julie's work has been presented in New York by The Chocolate Factory, Gibney, The Kitchen (Dance and Process), Movement Research at the Judson Church, Brooklyn Studios for Dance, JACK, Dixon Place, and Target Margin Theater. Currently she's working on a new piece for Roulette coming in June 2023. juliemayo.com
