Beth Gill is a Brooklyn-based artist who choreographs and performs contemporary dance in New York City. Since graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2003, she has accumulated a body of work that critically examines issues relating to contemporary dance and performance studies, through an ongoing exploration of aesthetics and perception. Ranging from short-term improvised structures to long-term choreographed performances, her work has been commissioned multiple times by The Kitchen, Dance Theater Workshop, Dixon Place, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Food For Thought and Catch. Her fellowships include Guggenheim Fellowship, New York, NY (2015), Foundation for Contemporary Art Fellowship, New York, NY (2012) and New York City Center Choreography Fellowship, New York, NY (2012, 2013). She was also selected as a Princeton Hodder Fellow (2015-2016). Gill was an artist-in-residence in LMCC’s Extended Life program (2015-2016); Process Space program, New York, NY (2011). Gill has received grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Art and the National Dance Project.
She is a member of the inaugural cohort The Hatchery Project (2013-2015) which includes luciana achugar, Paul Lazar and Annie B. Parsons, Reggie Wilson, Jennifer Calienes (MANCC), Sara Coffey (Vermont Performance Lab), Craig Peterson (Live Arts Brewery), Brian Rogers and Sheila Lewandowski (The Chocolate Factory Theater). In 2011, Gill was awarded two New York Dance and Performance Bessie Awards for Outstanding Emerging Choreographer and the Juried Award “for the choreographer exhibiting some of the most interesting and exciting ideas happening in dance in New York City today.” In 2012, Dance Magazine named her one of the top 25 artists to watch.
