Meredith Glisson is a multidisciplinary performer and teacher who received her professional degree in “Métiers des Arts et de la Culture” at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Rillieux-la-Pape/Compagnie Maguy Marin and the Departments of Anthropology and Sociology at the Université Lumière Lyon 2. She received her BA in Dance and French at Hollins University under the direction of Donna Faye Burchfield.
She has presented her works throughout the U.S. and France. She is interested in the person, the human being on stage where neither the absolutes of theater and dance take place but this milieu called “performance.” Her work focuses on the idea of the honest performance and how to produce believable situations. She uses physical and emotional states of being to generate movement and voice material; layering with the unconscious and life experiences, to create intricate meanings that go beyond choreography.
She collaborates with Michelle Mola and Zack Winokur | The Troupe, which has included residencies and performances at Baryshnikov Arts Center, The Yard and Summer Stages Dance. She has performed at La Biennale di Venezia in Jan Lauwers/Needcompany’s “The Slow Lie” and also participated in a workshop with Gisèle Vienne.
She teaches composition and performance ensemble courses at University of the Arts and conducts an ongoing workshop “Performance and the Muse” with Michelle Mola.
She served on the board of Chez Bushwick, Inc 2006-09.
She currently lives in New York City.
