Choreographer/dancer Liz Santoro will develop For Claude Shannon, utilizing lexical structures present in both movement and text to reveal the underlying processes of communication in performance.
Liz Santoro began her dance training at Boston Ballet School and with Marcus Schulkind. She then went on to study neuroscience at Harvard University where she received a Bachelor’s degree. She has worked with choreographers such as Alexandra Bachzetsis, Jack Ferver, Philipp Gehmacher, Trajal Harrell, Heather Kravas, David Wampach and Ann Liv Young.
Santoro and her collaborator, Pierre Godard’s, work has been presented by Danspace Project at St Marks Church, The Museum of Arts and Design, The Chocolate Factory Theater, Théâtre de Vanves, L’Atelier de Paris – Carolyn Carlson, Centre Pompidou Metz, Festival Actoral, Entre Cour et Jardins, and Impulstanz Festival in Vienna. It has received support from The Jerome Foundation, FUSED (French US Exchange in Dance), and DRAC Ile-de-France. A recent collaboration, Watch It, was awarded a 2013 New York Dance and Performance Bessie Award in the category of Outstanding Production for a work at the forefront of contemporary dance.
