Artist Bio

Welcome to Campfire is the story-making platform of Tony Bordonaro (Mason Gross) and Ingrid Kapteyn (Juilliard). They have collaborated to conceive, direct, produce, and perform four evening-length productions of three original danceplays in Shanghai and New York that have been recommended by TimeOut Shanghai, TimeOut NY, Playbill, and No Proscenium. After coproducing The Pigeon & The Mouse with the Moinian Group in 2020, they adapted the piece for sixteen live audiences throughout quarantine in NYC, made possible by a City Artist Corps grant and a Hebrew Tabernacle residency facilitated by Dance in Sacred Places. Their film adaptation of the piece screened at La MaMa, was a finalist in the Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival and the NewFilmmakers NY Film Festival, placed Top 5 in the Broadway On Demand Short Film Festival, and is now streaming on the Emmys® OTT platform. Their 2021 danceplay Subject at Memredux Laboratories premiered in a 9.2K ft.2 space on West 42nd Street. Recommended by TimeOut as one of the best immersive theater experiences in NYC, the live production was part art installation, part dance performance, and 100% immersive storytelling. The film was a finalist in the NewFilmmakers NY Film Festival and is now available to stream on Broadway On Demand.
