Mira Treatman



Mira Treatman is a dance-theatre artist who creates performances stemming from threads of empirically driven, experimental performance research. Described by Julius Ferraro in thINKingDANCE as not "graceful,” she works to reframe what (dancing) bodies can mean on stage, screen and site. She employs a mix of humor, gravity, formalism and pleasure-seeking to cultivate a sense of radical wonder for non-artists and artists alike. Her work has been presented at Dixon Place, the Sandy Spring Museum, Goldilocks Gallery, and Glasshouse. She has performed in works by and with Sylvain Émard, Katherine Kiefer Stark, Zornitsa Stoyanova, Irina Varina, Headlong, Teatro Linea de Sombra, and Cie Carabosse. In 2017 she was an artist in residence at Arts Letters & Numbers. She is currently in a cohort of emerging dance artists in the LANDING Program at Gibney Dance under the mentorship of Miguel Gutierrez. Mira is a proud alumna of Beloit College and Headlong Performance Institute.
