DD Dorvillier

Danza Permanente
Wed, Sept 26–Sun, Sept 30 at 8pm
The Kitchen

DD Dorvillier (choreographer) has been developing her artistic work in New York City since 1989, performing in the works of others, teaching, curating, and mentoring, as well as being an active force in the international dance scene. In 2003 she was awarded a Bessie for Choreography of Dressed for Floating, and in 2010 for her performance in Parades & Changes, replays, a re-activation by choreographer Anne Collod, of Anna Halprin's 1965 work. In 1991 she and dancer/choreographer Jennifer Monson created the Matzoh Factory. For over a decade the studio was an accessible grassroots site for wild experimentation where many choreographers and artists congregated for low-tech and low-cost shows, rehearsals, parties, and readings. She has worked with and been deeply influenced by: Jennifer Monson, Zeena Parkins, Jennifer Lacey, Yvonne Meier, Sarah Michelson, and Karen Finley, among many others. She has been a Movement Research Artist in Residence twice, was curator of the Movement Research Festival twice, and co-editor of the double issue of the MR Performance Journal “Release”. She received a New York Foundation for the Arts Choreography Fellowship (2000), a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Fellowship (2007), and a Guggenheim Fellowship (2011). Her work with her company, human future dance corps, has been presented in New York at The Kitchen, Dance Theater Workshop, Danspace Project, and PS 122, among many others. Internationally she has presented her work at ImPulsTanz, Vienna; DeSingel, Antwerp, STUK, Leuven; Hau/Hebel am Ufer, Berlin; Frascati, Amsterdam; Zagreb Dance Weeks, Zagreb; Springdance Dialogues/TSEH Festival, Moscow; and many others.
