MONICA BRADY-BARNARD

Monica Brady-Barnard is a movement artist based in Detroit. She has been choreographing work since 2010 after the birth of her first child. Four kids later, she continues to find inspiration in her personal experience of motherhood and the exploration of what it means to be female. Her company, Among Women, gives space for people to move and create together, creating a common movement vocabulary, in order to better understand each others unique life experiences. Her classes focus on choreographic techniques that allow movement artists to explore their own style within phrase work and improvisation. These allowances make for a collaborative environment in which all dancers hold ownership in the creative process.
