Lewis Center Past Fellows
Milka Djordjevich is a Los Angeles-based choreographer whose work draws from a variety of compositional strategies, questions and preconceived notions of what dance should or should not be. Her work has been shown at several venues including the Kitchen, the American Realness Festival, the Chocolate Factory Theater, Danspace Project, the 2010 Whitney Biennial, REDCAT, Pieter, Machine Project, Showbox LA/Bootleg Theater, Hammer Museum, and Counterpulse, as well as abroad in Austria, France, Italy, Germany, Macedonia, Serbia and the United Kingdom. She has received funding from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, the Center for Cultural Innovation ARC, and the Suitcase Fund, as well as residencies at Movement Research, Fabrik Potsdam, PACT-Zollverein, Workspace Brussels, University of California Los Angeles (U.C.L.A.) Hothouse, LMCC Swingspace, and Abrons Arts Center, among others. Djordjevich received a B.A. from U.C.L.A. and an M.F.A. from Sarah Lawrence College. As a Hodder Fellow at Princeton University during 2017-18, Djordjevich will undertake the research and development of her fourth project in a series of works exploring the perception of the female dancing body in the so-called “neutral” space of the theater.
