“I design intricate movement to explore the exquisite nature and dynamic relationships between human beings. The work is driven by the idea that the body is a living, sensing, biological plant that I implement as my aesthetic material. My dance language and physical expressiveness accumulate into dramatic content unmistakably constructed through choreographic means. I use the profound expression of the dancing body and my lucid performing instincts to drive the creative process. The work comes into being through the dancing of it. This is how I connect with people outside my environment.”

Dance artist and choreographer Jodi Melnick’s work stems from the continual act of creating through a movement-based practice. During Open Studios, audiences can learn more about her newest dance-in-progress.
