Julie Mayo by Ebru Yildiz

Julie Mayo

Julie Mayo is a New York-based choreographer, performer, and teacher who makes dances that foreground performance as content and resist easy description of lived experience. In New York she has had her work presented by Gibney, The Chocolate Factory, The Kitchen (DaP), Movement Research at the Judson Church, Brooklyn Studios for Dance, JACK and Dixon Place and nationally by Highways in Los Angeles, Columbus Dance Theater in Columbus, Ohio and NOHspace and Dance Mission in San Francisco Her choreography is rooted in a perceptual inquiry guided by conditions that are constructed and happenstance and illuminates a decidedly personal sense of logic. Often her work involves an evolution of the comma, and this, and this, and creates a leaky structure that multiple moments trickle in and out of, as a way of forming a (w)hole. Julie is a 2017 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence, a 2014-2015 New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks artist, and is the recipient of previous residencies at UCross Foundation, Djeraasi, Yaddo, Mount Tremper, Snug Harbor, and Virginia Center for Creative Arts. Julie has been a guest artist at University of Wisconsin/Madison, Dickinson College, Wilson College, Ohio University, University of Nebraska/Lincoln, Virginia Commonwealth University and next spring will be an Artist-in-Residence at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. Currently she is working on a new dance in the form of a distributed conglomerate. juliemayo.com
