Brooklyn Draper


My physical practice, which is ultimately embodied in performance, has been one my most intimate areas of research. Embodying diverse concepts, dynamics, and physical milestones have been a crucial portion of my career as a dancer who has worked with many choreographers. This practice also influences my research in dance science, collaboration, pedagogy, and choreography. Within the last two years, I have implemented Laban/Bartenieff principles into my physical practice. These principles have brought about a personal research into how Body, Effort, Shape, and Space can assist the many diverse physical and performative qualities that have been asked of me on stage.
