Her teaching and art practices are integrally linked. Other Dancers: Ursula Eagly has worked with Rebecca Brooks on her past two projects and loves this spacious approach to moving. She also creates performances of her own, and her last work premiered at Danspace Project as part of PLATFORM 2011: Body Madness. She is currently working on a new piece that will surface in the summer of 2012 and on an on-going exchange with the Macedonian choreographer Iskra Sukarova. www.ursulaeagly.org Emily Wexler works to find multiple ways of comprehending the world through dance. she’s a jersey girl. she loves poetry, sincerity, and anything within the realm of the ridiculous. she is working on a project which questions the nature of matter and mattering, and a project regarding gender, insanity, sexuality, violence, and self-abuse. emily also dances for lots of other great artists and teaches senior citizens the love of drawing an arc through space.
