Space Grant (2001/2002)

Liam Clancy is a choreographer, dancer, and teacher at the University of California, San Diego.

My work resides on the outskirts: on the border of dance, theater, poetry and performance art. Most of my training, the overwhelming amount, is as a dancer. I’ve been teaching dance at University of California, San Diego as a professor since 2005. Over the last few years I’ve been taking my art making practice out of the studio and my performances out of the theater, placing myself within the perceptual potential of anyone who happens to notice the work. By doing this I want to ask, what can live performance do in the world? How can performance offer a space for conversation while it is happening?
