ARTISTIC DIRECTOR - NEW YORK
Lauren Hlubny is a Brooklyn-based maker of dance-theatre. Hlubny’s professional directorial debut was at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL—an original 40-minute surrealist dance-theatre work titled DALI. Since then, she has created and mounted experimental works for communities in San Francisco, New York City, Seattle, Boston, Birmingham, Portland (ME), Paris, and Florence. Hlubny’s theatre training is in Stanislavski, Grotowski, and Meyerhold, with a distinct focus on the intersection of movement and storytelling. Hlubny has an extended background in classical ballet, art history, and anthropological research. These, along with experience in music and circus arts, give Hlubny a unique and informed hold on conducting creative rehearsals and shaping cohesive productions where people can speak completely different artistic “languages” while pushing the boundaries of contemporary performance and multi-disciplinary art.
