research overview

  • Michelle Ellsworth is a dancer, choreographer, video maker, sculptor, writer, and cartoonist. Dance is her native language as an artist; however, she regularly produces work that combines these and other genres and media. Her work is consistently shaped by: 1) her fluency not only in movement, but also in text, computers, improvisation, drawing, and video, and 2) her curiosity about gender, objects, identity, ritual, and the embodied and problematic human condition.


  • Interdisciplinary artist, web artist, and performance dance artist
