Mira Treatman is a dance-theatre artist who creates performances stemming from experimental research. Described by Julius Ferraro in thINKingDANCE as “not graceful,” she works to reframe what dancing bodies mean on stage, screen, and site. She currently writes for thINKingDANCE and offers ongoing community performance classes in Philadelphia.
Her work has been presented at Dixon Place, Goldilocks Gallery, the Sandy Spring Museum, and Glasshouse. She has performed in works by and with Sylvain Emard, Irina Varina, Katherine Kiefer Stark, Zornitsa Stoyanova, Headlong, and Teatro Linea de Sombra/Cie Carabosse. Her work has been supported by Arts Letters & Numbers, LANDING at Gibney with Miguel Gutierrez, Earthdance E|MERGE and the Knight Foundation/National Center for Choreography, Akron.
