AMDA Faculty since: 2011
Emily Meister is a dance theatre artist, choreographer, director, producer, experimental filmmaker, and educator. She has had the pleasure of working with Fire Trial Films, The Private Theatre of NYC, Galiana + Nikolchev's The Useless Room, Annie Saunders/Wilderness, Pussy Riot, Roya Carreras, HomeLA, Meredith Monk, Jeremy Nelson, and Santa Barbara Summer Dance. Her passions lie in experiential learning, in connection, creating spaces, and in collaborating to co-create. Her aesthetic originates from a sensory-based exploratory process, drawing upon breath, energy, movement, sound, and listening/reacting to an environment. She is grounded in a place of wonder and discovery, and is in a constant state of exploration of various ways of being. A steward of the earth, in both healing and physical arts, she dives deep into investigation, and integrates these elements into her way of being and artistic practices.
