Ivy Baldwin

Choreographer, performer, and teacher Ivy Baldwin is a 2014 Guggenheim fellow and this year’s Harkness Foundation Artist in residence at the BAM Fisher. She is also a 2013 Movement Research Artist-in-Residence (2013-2015) and recently completed creative residencies at MASS MoCA and New York’s Abrons Arts Center.

Baldwin founded Ivy Baldwin Dance in 1999, a New York-based company with an emphasis on collaboration between choreographer and performer. Her use of movement and theatrical abstraction aims to forge an interdisciplinary art form that breaks the traditional boundaries and assumptions of dance and theater. Evening-length commissioned works include Ambient Cowboy, New York Live Arts (2012); Here Rests Peggy, The Chocolate Factory (2010); Bear Crown, Dance Theater Workshop (2009); Could be nice, Dixon Place (2007); It's Only Me, Dance New Amsterdam (2007); Gone Missing, Dance Theater Workshop (2006); and Now Leaving Vanderville, Dixon Place (2004). In addition to these commissions, Ivy Baldwin Dance has been presented by Lincoln Center Out of Doors, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Symphony Space, CATCH in PS 122’s COIL Festival, and La MaMa, among others. The company has also toured nationally and internationally including Tanz im August in Berlin; Dans Contemporan International 26 Dance Festival in Bacau, Romania; REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArtsTheater); and Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
