Gina Gibney’s repertory of works and community outreach have received wide acclaim and support from audiences, colleagues, and critics. The cornerstone of Gibney’s repertory is a collection of eight evening-length works, composed over the last decade, that explore the humanity and poetry of the moving body. Beyond the stage, Gibney is also dedicated to using the transformative power of dance—both in performance and in practice—to give a voice to individuals in need. Considered pioneering in connecting the arts with the broader community, her Company’s work has reached thousands of domestic violence survivors.
Gibney graduated with high honors and received a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Case Western Reserve University. In addition to studies with Kathryn Karipides, David N. Brown, Kelley Holt, Mark Morris, and Jocelyn Lorenz, her choreography is greatly influenced by the performers and collaborators with whom she has worked. Gibney’s work has received recognition and support from a wide range of prestigious organizations, including the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York Community Trust, and the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. Her work has been presented and commissioned by prestigious venues in the US and abroad, including Danspace Project, White Bird Dance, Yale Repertory Theater, The Joyce Theater, The Guggenheim Museum, and Internationale Tanzmesse NRW. Gibney proudly serves on the Executive Committee of Dance/USA, and she was recently named to the Honorary Circle of Dance/NYC.
