About Shawn T. Bible
Shawn T Bible received a BA from Michigan State University and an MFA from the University of Michigan. His initial interest in technology arose from his experience as a former graphic designer for the Joe Boxer clothing brand and Kmart Corporation prior to graduate school. After his studies in film/video technology and modern dance technique in Australia, New York, San Francisco and Chicago, Shawn’s dance and technology work was featured in “Bodies In Motion” — a collaboration with Kingston University (UK) and the Amsterdam Conservatoire — in which dancers manipulated their environment through Wii controllers. In “Vivaldi’s Four Season’s in Dance,” he utilized Kinect software in such a way that the dancers’ movements manipulated projections on a scrim in real-time. Shawn is the artistic director of shawnbibledanceco, which presents work throughout NYC and the US, as well as internationally at such venues as the Lourdes Dance Festival in France and the Oaxaca Dance Festival in Mexico. He has set work on the Grand Rapids Ballet, Thodos Dance Chicago, Opera Grand Rapids, Grand Rapids Symphony, MOCA Detroit, Men Dance Michigan, Michigan Youth Arts Festival and Michigan Dance Day, among others. Shawn is a former Board Member of the ACDA (American College Dance Association) and the Michigan Dance Council. He has been on faculty at Idaho State University, Texas Tech University and Grand Valley State University where he received a Distinguished Faculty Award in 2012. Shawn is currently Professor of Dance and Chair of the Department of Theatre and Dance at Manhattanville College. Shawn currently serves as Vice President of the DFA’s Board of Directors. shawntbible.com
