Sally Silvers has been making dances for 30 years & her association with Roulette goes back almost as far. She has performed and taught (improvisation, composition, repertory) nationally & internationally. Her theoretical writing, scores, and poetry have appeared in several journals including The Drama Review, an anthology of new writings by women published by Illinois University Press, and many poetry magazines. Silvers has received support for her choreography from the National Endowment for the Arts six times, twice from Meet the Composer/Choreographer Project for collaborations with John Zorn and Bruce Andrews, from the NY Foundation for the Arts, the Foundation for Contemporary Performance Arts, and from a Guggenheim Fellowship. Silvers is a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” winner, has co-directed 2 dance films, Little Lieutenant and Mechanics of the Brain, and choreographed 3 musicals for the Sundance Theater Festival in Utah. She developed her concept of “live choreography” (making work live in front of an audience) in the mid-90’s. From 2006 to 2011, she danced in the recent new works of Yvonne Rainer.
