Making space for

Moriah Evans

Moriah Evans is a choreographer based in New York. Her compositions are processed by procedures rather than forms, insisting on the value of bodies in motion and relation, and to question how we dance together and engage social relationships through the choreographic pathways of dancing and witnessing within the performative event—interrogating dance history as well as the exhibitionism inherent in performance. Her choreographic work has been presented by MoMA PS1, Danspace Project, Issue Project Room, Movement Research at Judson Church, American Realness, New York Live Arts, CallT2, Kampnagel, Theatre de l’Usine and CDC Atelier de Paris. In 2015, Evans received a Bessie Award nomination for Emerging Choreographer. She is Editor-in-Chief of the Movement Research Performance Journal, and in 2011 she initiated The Bureau for the Future of Choreography—a collective apparatus involved in research processes and practices to investigate participatory images of performance and systems of choreography.
