Elizabeth Ward (AT/US)
Elizabeth Ward is choreographer and performer currently living in Vienna. Previously she has lived and worked in New York City, Athens, Brussels, and Portland, Oregon. Her work explores the collective histories of dance lineages embedded in a dancer’s muscle memory as a living archaeological terrain. In 2020 her latest work Dancing’s Demons, a dance dealing with hauntings and the complicated political histories of early Modern dance developed alongside visual artist Julia Zastava and musician Ana Threat, managed to premiere at Tanzquartier’s Halle G before theaters closed worldwide. Her project Anti-Fascist Ballet School, made in collaboration with Magdalena Chowaniec, was presented by Wiener Festwochen, wien woche, and at Der Blöde Dritte Mittwoch. Between 2014 and 2018 she has worked with electronic music producer AC/Boy on a techno ballet project that has been presented by Brut, WUK, The Kitchen (NYC), Trinosophes (Detroit), ANA (Copenhagen) and featured by the Boiler Room. As a performer she has participated in the works of Cathy Weis, Frédéric Gies, DD Dorvillier, Anne Juren, Jennifer Lacey, Heather Kravas, Manuel Pelmus, and Miguel Gutierrez amongst others.
