ALFRED, NY – Linda Ryan, dancer, choreographer, and technology performance artist, will be at Alfred University June 10-14 as artist in residence at the School of Art and Design’s Institute for Electronic Arts.

Ryan works with movement and time-based media to confront the simultaneously familiar and odd systems that govern the way we interface with the world around us. She has created choreography with Velcro suits, heat-sensitive floors, and GoPro action cameras.

While in residence at the Institute for Electronic Arts, Ryan will be creating a short dance film derived from her GoPro action camera choreography. 

Ryan holds a BA degree in dance from the George Washington University Corcoran School of the Arts & Design. Her previous performances include work by The Maida Withers Dance Construction Company, Vladimir Conde Reche, and I-Fen Tung. She was a recent artist-in-residence at PlySpace in Muncie, Indiana – where she taught at Cornerstone Center for the Arts and Ball State University – and is a cohort member with the 2019 Makers Space Experience at the Keshet Dance Center for the Arts in Albuquerque, NM.
