Jen Rosenblit has been making dances and teaching workshops on improvisation, choreography and performance in New York City since 2005. Rosenblit is a recipient of the 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Emerging Choreographer, an inaugural recipient of THE AWARD, a 2014-2015 workspace artist through LMCC, a 2013 Fellow at Insel Hombroich (Germany), a recipient of the 2012 Grant to Artists from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and a 2009 Fresh Tracks artist (Dance Theater Workshop). Rosenblit has received commissions from The Kitchen (a Natural dance, 2014, Bessie Award), New York Live Arts (In Mouth, 2012), and Danspace Project (When Them, 2010, curated by Juliette Mapp), and a new work Clap Hands is supported by residencies at Tanzhaus (Zurich), The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Atlanta, GA) and The Chinati Foundation (Marfa, TX), and will premiere in spring 2016. Rosenblit has worked as a performer and collaborator with artists including Young Jean Lee, Ryan McNamara, Yvonne Meier, Sasa Asentic, Anne Imhoff, Miguel Gutierrez and Simone Aughterlony, and has been a teaching artist at Bowdoin College, Hollins University, Bard College, NYU Tisch, Roger Williams, and Bennington College, and given lecture demonstrations surrounding the queer body and performance at Yale and Harvard. Recent works focus on an improvisational approach to choreographic thought and ways of structuring bodies as they fall out of relation aesthetically and spiritually while still locating ways of being together.
