About Emily Johnson
“Emily Johnson is an artist who makes body-based work. A Bessie Award-winning choreographer and 2015 Guggenheim Fellow in Choreography, she is based in Minneapolis and New York City. Originally from Alaska, she is of Yupâ€™ik descent and since 1998 has created work that considers the experience of sensing and seeing a performance. Her dances function as installations, engaging audiences within and through a space and environmentâ€”interacting with a place’s architecture, history, and role in the community.” Learn more at her website: www.catalystdance.com
