This piece was made possible by a Space Grant from Brooklyn Arts Exchange.

A native Brooklynite, Nadia Tykulsker is a mover/maker/manager/mayhem causer. She has been fortunate enough to work with the genius of Faye Driscoll, Amy Chavasse, Jessica Fogel, Xan Burley, Alex Springer, Jesse Philips-Fein, Abby Bender, EmmaGrace Skove-Epes, Katie Dean, Lindsey Dietz-Marchant, Shannon Hummel, Steve May and Kyli Kleven. Moving back to Brooklyn in the summer of 2010 Nadia started Spark(edit) Arts. Spark(edit) Arts was created as a forum to bring dancers and artists of different mediums together to make collaborative works of dance-theater. Through different mediums and forums of presenting movement we redefine the boundaries of dance making by ignoring conventional ideas of how, where and by whom dance can be witnessed and enjoyed.
