Talk: Eleanor Bauer



During our dance workshop led by Efrosini Protopapa and Steriani Tsintziloni, we had the pleasure to invite Eleanor Bauer for an artist talk. Eleanor spoke to us about the theory and research behind her practice, the non-linearity of dance and the limitations of using language when trying to answer the question ” How does dance think?”. Thank you Eleanor for such an inspiring talk and many thanks to our dance selection committee members and mentors, Efrosini and Stergiani for making this happen.

Eleanor Bauer is a performer and choreographer working at the intersections of dance, writing, and music. Her work is rooted in syntheses of embodied intelligences in her practice of making sense with the senses in performance. From solos to talk shows to large ensemble pieces, her versatile works range in scale, media, and genre traversing categories of performance with wit, humor, and aplomb.
