The Director

Eric Geiger - I make dances, perform, and collaborate with other artists. Making connections within a body (and between bodies) through moving and creating helps me to better understand my experiences and personal values. It enables me to maneuver through, interact with, and attempt to make sense of the world around me. I’ve been faculty at UCSD since 2007.

Liam Clancy has been creating, performing and collaborating at the intersection of contemporary dance, dance improvisation and theater since 1998. He’s interested [borrowing the borrowed words of David Shields] in making work that “advances by juxtaposition or sidewinding poetic logic, makes use of other genres when they serve its purpose, sets off on an uncharted course and invites the audience’s participatory interpretation.” He’s been on faculty at UCSD since 2005.
