Meet the Artist: Bridget Morris

January 2, 2012 § 1 Comment

Happy January!

NCDF Community Day is right around the corner (January 28), and we are continuing our profiles of the artists who will be presenting work in the informal afternoon showing.

Bridget Morris is the director of Echo Contemporary Dance Company, based in Charlotte, NC; she founded the company in the summer of 2010.  She received her training in the Charles Weidman technique under former Weidman dancer, Mary Ann Mee, at Central Piedmont Community College.  In 1998 Bridget graduated from Ohio State University with a B.F.A. in dance.  Since graduating she has been a company member of the Moving Poets Theater of Dance and Alban Elved Dance Company.

Bridget will be presenting “Kinetic Cacophony,” a work for six dancers.  The dance is an experiment in the abstraction of sound from the multiple dynamics inherent in movement.  Using a reverse process, the kinetic soundbites were composed to the finished choreographic work to create a unique audio-visual experience.
