Dance Guest Artists
Eva Karczag has practiced, taught, and advocated for explorative methods of dance making since the early 1970s. She danced with Trisha Brown Dance Company from 1979-85, creating original roles in Opal Loop, Son of Gone Fishin’, and Set and Reset. She has performed her own work in diverse locations, most recently in durational performance/installations with visual artist Chris Crickmay and composer Sylvia Hallett at the Laban Institute, London; during the Summer Dancing Festival in Coventry, England, with Mlgven Gerbes (Tanzfrabrik, Berlin); and with Gaby Agis (Winlab, London). Her performance work and her teaching are informed by dance improvisation and mindful body practices including the Alexander Technique (certified teacher) and Ideokinesis. She has an MFA degree (Dance Research Fellow) from Bennington College and has taught dance at major colleges and studios through out the U.S., Australia, and Europe, including a sustained period of teaching on the faculty of the European Dance Development Center in Arnhem, Netherlands, from 1990-2002. Together with Vicky Shick, she has staged Set and Reset at the Budapest Contemporary Dance School and the Modern Dance Department of the Amsterdam Theater School.
