Suzy Grant

Dancer, Improvisor, Performer
2021 Make a Wave
Dance

Suzy Grant creates performances that bridge elements of contemporary dance, drag, storytelling, and improvisation to investigate gender, sexuality, race, and perception. Over the span of her career, she has been drawn to projects embodied in both movement and vocal work and that subvert the personal to interrogate the political. Her work often draws from her experiences as a multiracial person with a complex identity and history to challenge the perceptions and assumptions that are frequently placed on her. She is deeply steeped in improvisation, both as a practice and as a tool in creating language and movement. The design of space and use of objects also informs her process as she seeks to create a world in which her performances can live.
