Their work has been presented at theaters, festivals, and universities throughout the U.S., Europe, Latin America, Asia, and New Zealand, and they have been supported by many national and international funding institutions. These “dare-devils of the heart” (Dance Magazine) have been associate professors of Dance at the University of Maryland College Park’s School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies since 2009. 2011-12 engagements include residencies in China, Chile, Switzerland, the Bates Dance Festival, and performances in the Washington, DC area.

Nests: Rebecca Davis

The project was made possible, in part, through the Movement Research Artist-in-Residence Program, funded, in part, by the Leonard and Sophie Davis Fund and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Rebecca Davis‘s work encompasses performance, installation and sculpture. She is a 2010 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence and a HERE Resident Artist. Davis re-performed Point of Contact in the Marina Abramovic retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art. She has since trained performers with Ms. Abramovic in Manchester, Milan, Moscow and Los Angeles. On Wednesday, April 18 from 10:30am-6pm she will be performing a new work at Exit Art as part of Ephemeral Evidence, a group show curated by Culturebot.  You are invited to join her as a performer or as a viewer.

Direction by Jessica Ray
Performance by Megan Byrne, Jessica Cook, Jessica Ray

It started as a solo, then with Cook as an interrupting second. Meanwhile Jessica Ray had finished performing Byrne‘s work. It was a reasonable progression to add her experience, but as a performer. Mehlan works at Roulette and has been around an influx of dance lately. More conversation followed. All of these events happened in one year. For more information about the artists, please find us on the internet.

Adagio for Kjos
Choreographic direction by Megan Byrne with movement by the performers
Performed by Jennifer Kjos and Jessica Ray

Hi.  I’m Megan Byrne.  I’m a Brooklyn-based artist who makes dances and chandeliers.  Recently I have been working on choreographic studies based on the relationships between improvisation and choreography. It has been a pleasure to work with such talent as Jennifer Kjos, Jessica Ray and Justin Walter – as well as Stephanie Waddell, Laurie Berg and Liliana Dirks-Goodman.
