At 7, Michelle Ellsworth told her mother “I want to be a dancer”, after watching the Ernest Flat Dancers on the Carol Burnett Show. Ellsworth’s career includes a wide range of evening-length solos, short works, videos, and performative web sites. Starting from her native medium of dance, she works within video, text, web design, and installation to pursue topics ranging from gender to the human condition. Among her honors are a Doris Duke Impact Award (2015), a NEFA National Dance Project Grant (2014), and a Creative Capital Fellowship (2013). She is an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. Find out more at michelleellsworth.com.
