Women Who Dance

Next Act Theatre/Danceworks Performance Company · March 1, 2018 Presented 45-minute solo dance-theatre work DISCLOSURE TACTICS for myself and a group of intergenerational female-identified performers about what the body hides and reveals, by dancing. I presented the piece twice in 2018, first at Brown University in Providence, RI with an ensemble of 14, and again with a new Danceworks, Inc., 25th anniversary season in Milwaukee with 20 eager performers.

Danceworks Performance Company

various venues · January 1, 1997 - January 1, 2007 From 1997-2007 I co-founded and served as choreographer-artistic director for Milwaukee-based contemporary dance collective Danceworks Performance Company, where I created over thirty works for the concert stage. These works included five (5) evening-length intergenerational dance documentary performances under the auspices of The Wide Sky Dance Project, the first of which received support from the National Endowment for the Arts. This choreography was housed at a number of midwest venues. A partial list of works produced is available on my professional website. Sarah Wilbur-concert choreography
