Sarah R Dahnke
BROOKLYN, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant



ARTIST STATEMENT: As an artist I use movement and film to tell stories. Dance allows for a physical, embodied storytelling, while film creates a rich visual that can be accompanied with oral storytelling. When I choreograph, itís not just about creating dance steps. Iím more interested in the natural choreographies that exist within all people and the organic movements that are created from people who arenít trained to dance. I believe that dance is everywhere, in the way that humans negotiate space, perform work, play games, and engage in routines, and I use the camera to frame and highlight these daily dances that may otherwise be overlooked. I am a Brooklyn-based choreographer, multimedia artist, and arts educator. I create performance experiences that often feature non-performers, highlighting and celebrating the nuances of natural, untrained human movement. Under the name Round Tuit Dance Project, her choreography for stage and video has been showcased nationwide at venues such as Dance Theater Workshop, The Kitchen, CPR-Center for Performance Research, 319 Scholes, DUO Multicultural Arts Center, Milkbar, Hyde Park Arts Center, Ruth Page Center for the Arts, Gowanus Ballroom, and Grace Exhibition Space.
