An extension of a previous performance that debuted during [DANCEROULETTE]’s lec/dem series in November, Emily Wexler performs Hunter alongside musician Annie Stutzman. “Hunter” is the process of assembling and then disassembling negotiations of power implicit in the ways in which we love. Emily Wexler works as a choreographer, dancer, and teacher based in Brooklyn. She has performed alongside many incredible artists including Rebecca Brooks, Kim Brandt, Beth Gill, Karinne Keithley Syers,Yvonne Meier, Ryan McNamara, Jen McGinn, and Ishmael Houston-Jones. Her work has been shown throughout the world. She is interested in: pre-semiotic parallels between compositional tendencies of dance and poetry, the lives of girls and women, fun, and Emily Dickinson. Since 2009 she has worked throughout different Senior Citizen centers in Brooklyn creating dances with whoever wanted to dance. She was honored with a Bessie nomination in performance and recently received a Foundation for Contemporary Art Emergency Grant for the premiere of her work Blood Trees. She holds an MFA in Dance from Hollins University and teaches Dance History/Theory/Criticism and Performance Labs at The University of the Arts.
