Ursula Eagly makes dances characterized by a “rabbit-hole logic” (NY Times) that considers the potential of porosity, an interrupted physicality, and you. Her work has been commissioned and presented in New York by The Chocolate Factory, Dance Theater Workshop, Danspace Project, and Mount Tremper Arts, among others, and internationally in Albania, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Macedonia, Manipur, and Mexico. Her work has been sustained by grants from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation/USArtists International, The Suitcase Fund, FCA/Emergency Grant, Japan Foundation/Performing Arts JAPAN, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and the Queens Council on the Arts, and through residencies including Movement Research AIR, Explore the Metropolis Choreographer + Composer, Gibney Dance boo koo, Dance New Amsterdam AIR, DTW Studio Series, DTW Fresh Tracks, Topaz Arts’ Solo Flight, and Ur (NYC), Kaatsbaan International Dance Center (Tivoli, NY), IIAC (Earthdance), Stara Elektrarna (Ljubljana), STATION (Belgrade), and Seoul Dance Center (Korea).
