Performer & Educator
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

Oh hey, it's me :)
