Dawn Kramer, Choreographer / Video
Medium: Performance Video
Location: Home Studio: 143 Cummings Highway
I make site-specific performance videos in various places in the world such as Japan, France, Ireland, Italy. As a choreographer/performer, I let the particular environment inspire the concept and movement for each piece. In my "silent video/movement poems," the human figure is a small or highly integrated part of the environment rather than a dominating force. For Roslindale Open Studios, I invite the public to screen these short videos in our home.
Stephen Buck shoots the videos; we edit them together. A professor emerita in the Studio for Interrelated Media at MassArt, I have received grants from the National Endowment for theArts, Massachusetts Cultural Council and others.
