This project is funded, in part, by Dance Theater Workshop’s Suitcase Fund as part of the East/Central Europe Cultural Partnerships Program, with support from the Trust for Mutual Understanding.

Dragana Bulut is a freelance choreographer andperformer based in Belgrade. Since 2004, she has been developing her own creative work and is active as as performer in Serbia and abroad. Milka Djordjevich is a dance artist based in Brooklyn. She is interested in intersecting her own choreographic interests with other collaborators and communities, in order to discover greater concerns that are separate from herself.

Vanessa Justice
is a choreographer and performer living in Brooklyn. She founded Vanessa Justice Dance in 2007 as a structure to support ongoing movement experimentation, choreographic research, performances, and collaborations. She is developing a relational approach to choreography where divergent sources of information meet and create a context for interplay. Her work has been seen at home (Dance New Amsterdam, Danspace Project, The A.W.A.R.D. Show!, Joyce SoHo, Wesleyan University, etc.) and abroad (republic Salzburg, Festival re:vision Warsaw, Theater Belacqua Wasserburg/Inn, Germany). Her recent evening-length work FLATLAND (2009) will tour to San Diego this April. She was awarded a 2009 Joyce SoHo Artist Residency, and recently has been an Artist-in-Residence at the Liguria Study Center (Bogliasco Fellowship), the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD), Movement Research, and Yaddo. She received a Graduate Research Award from the Congress on Research in Dance (CORD) for her research on how choreography challenges normative beliefs about the body. Supported by a Watson Fellowship, she spent a year studying and performing in Taiwan, Indonesia, India, and Germany. She earned degrees from Pomona College (BA Religious Studies/Philosophy) and The Ohio State University (MFA Choreography).

UNSEEN and SEEN DANCE (3-15-10)
Dana Salisbury and the No-See-Ums
Dance for a blindfolded audience and non-blindfolded viewers
Performers are posted at
Unseen Dances are created in collaboration with performers who remain anonymous until after the fact. I cannot begin to express how much I appreciate their creativity, discipline and generosity. This work has been supported by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Swing Space program; space at 14 Wall Street is donated by Capstone Equities.

Dana Salisbury‘s investigations span dance, video, language, site-specific performance installation, and visual art. Her dances and videos have been seen in New York at P.S. 122, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Dance Theater Workshop, Dixon Place, University Settlement and the 92nd Street Y. She has created site-specific works for Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, NYC’s Lower East Side Tenement Museum and Brooklyn’s Old American Can Factory. In 1999, she was awarded a “Bessie” for her work with the performance collective Red Dive. Whole-Body-Seer (2004), inspired by the sensate and imaginative life of the blind, offered experiential equivalents of vision without sight. This work led to the creation of Dark Dining Projects, sensory feasts served to blindfolded diners in the US and abroad. Her newest works, the Unseen Dances, are dances for blindfolded audiences.


  • Hi Chase. That’s strange, we haven’t had that problem before. We’ll look into it–I know this is an old comment, so maybe the problem was already solved. Let us know.

  • These videos won’t play for me. I am given the message that they are private videos and I need accept a friend request from the user. Help?
