ABOUT

me

Miryam Coppersmith is a performance-maker, writer, dancer, and educator. Her performance work aims to redefine and reinvigorate live space and engage with the present moment. Drawing from a DIY punk ethos, a desire to blend the lines between disciplines, and a love of teaching and learning, each performance intends to be the start of a real conversation between performer(s) and audience. Her most recent work centers friendship as the sod, the secret, at the center of collaboration.

Miryam writes and edits for thINKingDANCE. She is also an avid social dancer. She teaches blues dance, contact improvisation, and lindy hop.

BA in Dance and Creative Writing from Oberlin College

"Artists aware of their philosophical context engage in a living dialogue with their time."   -Mary Overlie

Delving deep into the Six Viewpoints with Deborah Black as my guide is opening up to the deliciousness of detail and the possibilities of being a finite body in space (time, emotion, movement, shape, story). 

Relishing the slow depth of winter and also prying open my arms to come back to sharing my practice in various ways... soon...
