Shelley Senter

Shelley Senter is an independent and collaborative dance artist whose work has been
presented worldwide. She danced with the Trisha Brown Dance Company from 1986-1991, and
as a guest artist in 2017, and has directed reconstructions and adaptations of Brown's
choreography for such institutions as the Lyon Opera Ballet, Centre Georges Pompidou,
Barbican, P.A.R.T.S., Centre National de Danse Contemporaine, and many universities in the
US. Senter is a repetiteur of Yvonne Rainer's Trio A, and has been presented as a "living
archive" of the seminal choreography of Brown, Rainer and others in autobiographical
performance-lectures at such venues as MoMA, the Tate Modern, Berliner Festival, and the US
Embassy in Vienna, where she was honored for her particular approach to transmission and
performance at the Impulstanz Festival. Her work is informed by her experience as a teacher of
the Alexander Technique, member of LOWER LEFT Improvisation Performance Collective and
collaborations with many distinguished artists.
