Introducing Paige Barnett
I am a Louisiana/NYC-based dancer and artist from Lafayette, LA with a chemical engineering degree that’s never been used. I currently dance for three professional companies: NYC’s Dance Heginbotham, NYC’s MeenMoves and Lafayette’s own Basin Dance Collective. As a freelance dancer, you can catch me performing in anything from a Marc Jacobs Runway show to with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, or even popping up in a shop window in downtown, Laf. As a creator, I make videos and dances. My work aims to blend (and muddy) new and old technology, music, theatre and dance to fantasize a realm of contrasting ideas: relaxation v. effort, sexuality v. ludicrousness, conviction v. abandonment. But in the end, what I create is ultimately up to you, the viewer. As Lee Breuer once brilliantly said, “Theatre does not exist on the stage. Theatre exists in your head.
