Melanie Greene

Melanie Greene, a 2017 Bessie Award Recipient for Outstanding Performance with Skeleton Architecture, is a movement-based artist swirling on the edges of impossible, swimming in the sea of the minority. She has presented work at Dixon Place, Movement Research at Judson Church, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, WOW Cafe, BAAD, and New York Live Arts. She has received generous support from Gibney Dance boo-koo Space Grant/Work Up 4.0, New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks residency, Actors Fund Summer Push Grant, and Dancing While Black Fellowship. She is a contributing writer for The Dance Enthusiast, Dance Magazine, and her personal blog On the Scene With Lanie Reene. Currently Greene is a Movement Research Artist-in-Residence and Bogliasco Fellow. As a southern belle Brooklynite, Greene values being in the trenches of ongoing anti-racist work and equity. She also holds a special place for biscuits, country ham, and collard greens. Stay tuned.
