About the Director

LIAM CLANCY (Assistant Professor, MFA in choreography, University of California, Los Angeles) began his career in New York City dancing in Elizabeth Streb’s Ringside Company. While with Streb he participated in the PopAction National Tour performing in venues that included the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, The Wexner Arts Center in Columbus Ohio and the Joyce Theater in New York City. In 1998 he began creating his own hybrid style that blends contemporary American dance and theater with elements of vaudeville and circus to explore issues of identity, culture, humor and survival. In New York his work has been presented at the New York International Fringe Festival, HERE Arts Center and Dance Theater Workshop. In California REDCAT Theater at Walt Disney Hall, Highways Performance Space, The Hammer Museum and Sushi Performance & Visual Art in San Diego has presented him. His dance film, At the Door, was screened at the 2005 Dance Camera West International Film Festival in Los Angeles. Clancy received his BA in sociology and dance from Rhode Island College where he performed in repertory works by Elizabeth Streb, Douglas Dunn, Gus Solomons Jr, Dorothy Jungels, and Doris Humphrey. In 2005 he received his MFA in choreography from the University of California, Los Angeles where he was the recipient of the UCLA Glorya Kaufman Award for excellence in choreography and the Simone Forti Family Scholarship for dance improvisation.
