Upping the ante on dance coverage and conversation

Mira Treatman

Mira Treatman is a writer and editor with thINKingDANCE. She is presently working toward her Master of Science in trauma counseling after ten years of work in the non-profit performing arts sector. Born, raised, and rooted in the city of Philadelphia, she is committed to connecting people around ideas and meaningful experiences across social and choreographic boundaries. She is looking forward to completing her graduate degree, with the goal of offering dynamic, affordable group therapy resources that utilize her background in dance-theatre, in addition to working as a trauma-sensitive therapist.

Prior to the pandemic, Mira taught ongoing community performance classes at 954 Dance Movement Collective, co-produced the 2020 E|MERGE Residency at Earthdance Creative Living, the 2020 Rocky Awards, and was a 2019-20 Get What You Need resident artist through BodyMeld. Her work has been presented at Dixon Place, Goldilocks Gallery, the Sandy Spring Museum, and Glasshouse. She has performed in works by and with Sylvain Emard, Irina Varina, Katherine Kiefer Stark, Zornitsa Stoyanova, Headlong, and Teatro Linea de Sombra/Cie Carabosse. Her work has been supported by Arts Letters & Numbers, LANDING at Gibney with Miguel Gutierrez, Earthdance E|MERGE, the Knight Foundation/National Center for Choreography, Akron, Art is Essential Philadelphia, and the Stockton Rush Bartol Foundation in partnership with Small but Mighty Arts.
