Jordan Fuchs

Jordan Fuchs is an experimental choreographer committed to explorations of form and formlessness, proximity, and physicality. His choreography has been hailed by Deborah Jowitt of the Village Voice as “Redefining chaos,” and by Jennifer Dunning of the New York Times as “magical.” Creating work primarily through a collaborative, project-based company model, his recent research explores improvisation as a means of enabling co-authorship in performance. His choreography has been commissioned by many prestigious venues and international institutions. He is a Fulbright Specialist and has been on faculty at Hunter College and Movement Research and taught at numerous colleges across the United States, and internationally at the NTUA in Taipei, Tsekh Summer School in Moscow and Danz’Aqui Festival Internacional in Puerto Rico. In 2009 Fuchs founded the Texas Dance Improvisation Festival, which he continues to coordinate. He holds a BA in Religion from Oberlin College and an MFA in Choreography from Ohio State University,. He is an Associate Professor of Dance at Texas Woman’s University in Denton, TX and a recipient of the prestigious 2012 TWU Mary Mason Lyon Award for Excellence in Scholarship, Teaching and Service.
