Neil Greenberg

Neil Greenberg came to New York from Minnesota in 1976 and danced with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company from 1979-1986. He is known especially for his Not-About-AIDS-Dance, which employs projected text as a layering strategy to provide doors into meanings in the dance while also raising questions about the nature of meaning-making. His most recent projects - To the things themselves! , This, (like a vase), and Really Queer Dance With Harps - continue his utopian interest in the move away from representation toward an experience of the performance moment in and of itself. He has a Guggenheim, two Bessie Awards, and support from the NEA, NYFA, NYSCA, MAP Fund, FCA, NDP and Doris Duke. Greenberg is currently faculty at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, The New School and has previously taught at Purchase College, Sarah Lawrence College, and UC Riverside. He served as dance curator at The Kitchen from 1995-1999.
